Ticket Alert: Gigs on Sale Friday 12 August

There's yet another album anniversary show on sale this week, along with a nice mix of rock, tribal masks and a band with a new member. Tickets to all these should be available from 9am or 10am on Friday:

  • PJ HarveySBTRKT (pronounced 'subtract', apparently) is a London producer who first made waves with remixes of artists including Radiohead, M.I.A and Basement Jaxx. The anonymous electro-dubstep artist brings his tribal mask to XOYO on 4 October. Tickets from here.
  • Continuing the current fashion for album shows, Ash have decided to play Free All Angels in full at the HMV Forum. They'll be joined by former guitarist Charlotte Hatherley for the ten-year celebration, which happens on 25 October - tickets available here.
  • The latest in a string of strong albums, Let England Shake is P J Harvey's war-themed Mercury-nominated effort. The singer-songwriter received strong reviews when she played The Troxy earlier this year, and the grand surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall should suit her just fine on 30 October. Tickets from here.
  • Psychedelic dance-rockers Death in Vegas have surprised with their versatility in the past. However, they've been relatively quiet since 2004, when their last album was released. No matter: have a listen to their new tracks, then - if you like them - book to see the band at the Electric Ballroom on 15 December. Tickets from here.
  • It's hard to know how Gallows will fare without charismatic frontman Frank Carter. Whether bringing his mum on-stage at Reading Festival or getting tattooed during a show, he's always been the group's focal point. You can see the band with new singer Wade MacNeil on 13 December at XOYO. Tickets from here.

Also booking this week: Kitty, Daisy & Lewis at Scala, Alkaline Trio at the Electric Ballroom and The Webb Sisters at Union Chapel.
