The Takeover UK On Tour In Support Of Debut Album

The Takeover UK, hailing from the exotic land of Pittsburgh, PA, is hitting the road in support of their Rykodisc debut "Running with the Wasters" due out on March 24th. The foursome perform a raucous blend of pop smattered with a bratty dose of punk rock rebellion. The boys plan to tour relentlessly in 2009 with warm-up dates beginning in February.

They released an EP "It's All Happening Now" in Spring of 2008 to help with gas money as they took to the road, performing with the likes of Army Navy, The Von Bondies and The Shys. Popmatters wrote of the EP, "...they approximate the garage rock sounds of a band like the Strokes, except with better harmonies, more danceable beats and vocals up in the mix."
