Client Info

Klaxons are an English band, currently based in London, with a large underground following. The word 'klaxon' derives from the Greek verb klazō, meaning "to shriek".

Their original name of Klaxons (Not Centaurs) comes from a line in the art text The Futurist Manifesto.

Their debut album, titled Myths of the Near Future, was released on January 29, 2007 following the single "Golden Skans", which was released on January 22, 2007.

Although often tagged as a "London band", the three core members actually hail from the provincial UK towns of Stratford-Upon-Avon (James Righton and Simon Taylor-Davis, who attended school together in the town), and Bournemouth (Jamie Reynolds).

Klaxons headlined the NME indie rave tour starting in February 2007. The London date at Hammersmith Palais sold out in two days. They have also had promising early success in Europe, Japan and Australia, selling out tours in November 2006, and upcoming sell-out headline UK dates in May 2007.
