We're thrilled to be supporting The Quails on 15 May at Man On The Moon! After supporting Muse on their UK tour last year, the Quails strike out on their path to glory and make a welcome return to Cambridge, support comes from Stoke's Lost Scenes + Whisky Jax + The Scissors.
Indie-rock four piece The Quails have certainly made an impact on the music industry and are now set to play both Reading & Glastonbury this year.

Do you believe in modern love?
Does it show
Over and out
Your house has ghosts
Lucy for London
Now or never
When you were King Rat
'I can confirm (despite internet rumours to the contrary) that we're definitely playing tonight (18 Feb, Portland Arms) - but sadly this will be Sam's (almost) last gig with us on drums - he's moving on to other stuff outside the band, after his final gig with us in Camden the following week. So it'll be a fond (Cambridge) farewell to Sam tonight...'
— Stewart ScissorYour last chances to see The Scissors with the legendary Sam Rice on drums will be:
18 February 2010, Portland Arms, 129 Chesterton Road, Cambridge (8pm, £4 entry)
27 February 2010, The Enterprise, Camden, London NW3 2BL (8pm, £5 entry)
After that, The Scissors will return in live form sometime in the summer! Watch this space!
