ITP: We Were Promised Jetpacks @ Mid East

Hey! We Were Promised Jetpacks are back! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD leave the douche nozzle sound guy home this time. Still not sick of "Quiet Little Voices," though...

Repost from Hotline: We Were Promised Jetpacks, an explosive Scottish indie band whose indie post-punk styling made us long for the glory days of 2004, return stateside with a gig at Cambridge’s Middle East on Sunday, Feb. 14.

Last fall’s shared triple-bill at Great Scott alongside Twilight Sad and BrakesBrakesBrakes was one of the best shows of the year (even with the most miserable person in the world employed as the tour’s sound engineer!) and We Were Promised Jetpacks’ fiery single “Quiet Little Voices” appeared on Hotline’s Best of 2009 list. Recalling early Bloc Party, it also made several cameos in promotional spots for the MLB Network.

Full tour routing from Motormouth Media after the YouTube jump…
