Folk-rock quintet Ellen & The Escapades look set to continue last year’s success with an even bigger and better 2012 as they announce their headline tour this spring.

Last year saw the band win Q Magazine’s/Glastonbury ‘Emerging Talent’ Competition, sell out venues across the UK in support of their EP Of All The Times and gain the attention of Steve Lamacq and Rough Trade with their catchy debut single ‘Without You’.

Ellen & The Escapades built up an army of fans with a succession of stellar festival performances over the course of last year and are preparing for the much-anticipated release of their debut album in April.

The tour stretches across most of England with dates in Norwich, Bath, Brighton, York and Cambridge.
