Earlier this year, the band played a one-off special show in Brixton to celebrate the release of their debut album, which went on to win the Mercury Prize.

Speaking about the special gig, the band said: “To celebrate the ten year anniversary of the album that changed our lives, we are thrilled to announce an extra show at Brixton Academy where we will play ‘An Awesome Wave’ in full.

“We know how much this record means to our fans and can’t wait to turn back the clock to 2012 with them in London’s best venue.”

Speaking to NME earlier this year, frontman Joe Newman said that Alt-J have “never stopped celebrating our debut album”.

“We’ve never stopped playing those songs live,” he added about the continued inclusion of tracks from ‘An Awesome Wave’ in their setlist. “It didn’t just do more than our other albums in terms of sales. It became a big part of a lot of people’s formative years in a way that our other albums haven’t done.”
