Despite touring with both Muse and Snow Patrol on arena tours in 2012, Everything Everything have admitted that they don't think they're quite up to the task of headlining such a big venue yet.

The band recently spoke of joining the huge bands on their recent UK tours, and said that joining Muse and Snow Patrol was just a 'taste' of stadium success. Talking about supporting Muse on their arena tour the band told Gigwise:

'It gives you a taste, but playing your own gigs is very different to doing a support. Doing a support in arenas is great, we wouldn't get to be there otherwise.

"It's interesting because we're definitely not ready for that...bands grow gradually, I don't think you can kind of leap to it. We're looking forward to playing some bigger venues than we have been but I can't see us going there.'

The quartet embark on a headline tour in February downsizing from O2 arenas to O2 academies. The band are unphased though, commenting:

'I think ideally if you had the choice then it would be nice to make the choice. Radiohead can play 4,000 capped places or they can play stadiums depending on how they feel, I wouldn't want to ever play just one, but we may never get the choice now...it's rare to get to play to that level of people.'


Everything Everything release their new album Arc on 14 January 2013

Everything Everything begin their tour in Portsmouth on 7 February. They will also be supporting Two Door Cinema Club play Alexandra Palace on 27 April and performing at the NME Awards Show on 13 February in London. For more information visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
