The View to play 'secret' show in Dundee next week

The View to play 'secret' show in Dundee next week

Dundee's best known rockers The View are playing an unannounced hometown gig at Buskers next week.

Kyle Falconer and crew released their fifth studio album Ropewalk - produced by The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr - on Friday, September 4.

To mark the occasion the band announced a 14-stop UK tour that includes such exotic locations as Hull and Wrexham but, sadly, no Dundee.

Local fans of the hard-partying band need fear not though as new vinyl shop Assai UK has convinced them to play a 'secret' gig at another Dundee favourite - Buskers.

"They are local heroes really and because we are a new independent record shop they have been very keen to get involved with us," said Assai UK owner Keith Ingram.

"Since they aren’t playing any other Dundee gigs we thought it was an ideal opportunity to thank the local fans and to promote the new record all at once.

"It’s not very often that you get the opportunity to work with a top ten band - and the new stuff sounds really good."

The music video for 'Under the rug' was released earlier this week.

Despite the gig not being on the band's website or social media outlets, The View will be performing at Buskers on Wednesday, September 9.

It is the only full Dundee gig on their current schedule - although they will be appearing at HMV on Monday, September 7.

STV spoke to the band ahead of new album Ropewalk being released for a chat about that pair of jeans, working with The Stokes guitarist and having drinks with Paolo Nutini.

Broughty Ferry's newest record shop Assai UK officially opened last week and has already gone down well with music fans in the city of discovery.

"It’s been fantastic - last weekend the response was great and we had lots of activity with live bands and authors," said Keith.

"It all went down really well - better than anticipated really. It just shows that the demand is out there and hopefully we’ll see people back in the shop and hopefully buying The View too."

More information on the gig and how to secure tickets can be found on the Assai UK Facebook page.
