2010 seems to be the year for up and coming Christmas Island twosome Fan Death (which, somehow, is also a ridiculous Korean urban legend regarding electric fans).
They've already announced a slew of US dates with Little Boots, they've got a brand new EP on it's way and now, none other than Vampire Weekend have picked them for a UK tour support slot.
The VW support begins on February 4th in Bexhill, continuing for a total of ten nights and ending at the Brixton Academy in London on the 17th. They then pick back up in the US for the Little Boots support as of March 2nd, running for eight nights and finishing on March 13th. The duo are also set to play at this years SXSW Festival in Texas a little later on in March. Busy they most certainly are.
The new EP, titled A Coin For The Well EP is due for release on January 18th on the rather new Pharmacy Recording Company label. A full-length is also in the works and due later this year.
You can check their full tour plans, both UK and US-based, just below. If you've not heard them yet, we've also added their video for Reunited.
