La Roux to play series of comeback shows

La Roux are to make a live return, as they prep their much-delayed follow-up to 2009′s self-titled debut.

The electro-pop duo, consisting of frontwoman Elly Jackson and producer Ben Langmaid, dropped the hugely successful album nearly four years back, scoring hits with the lifted tracks ‘In For The Kill’ and ‘Bulletproof’.

Now, they are plotting some comeback shows with a trio of gigs in Brighton, Bristol and Coventry.

Jackson recently spoke to NME about the delay:

“I realised the album I wanted to make would require me being a much better musician than I was. There’s been a lot of learning and it’s been fun and I didn’t want it to stop, basically. I’m not one for describing how the songs sound, but to me it sounds great, obviously, or I wouldn’t have spent this much time making it.”

Check the live dates in full and listen to Skream’s remix of ‘In For The Kill’ below:

28 – Brighton, Concorde 2
