It’s no secret that These New Puritans’ ‘Hidden’ has been unjustly robbed of a much deserved Mercury Prize nomination, but that’s not preventing the Southend band from putting on two very special shows this autumn.

Fronted by Jack Barnett and brother George, the band have announced that they’ll play London’s Barbican Centre on October 23rd 2010, backed by The Britten Sinfonia – an 18-piece orchestra that’ll finally realise the full cinematic potential of the band’s second album. The show will also see Sophie Sleigh-Johnson re-join the band on keyboards before a repeat perfromance at Paris’ Pompidou Center on December 18th.

Earlier this year These New Puritans launched ‘Hidden’ accompanied by an 8-piece orchestra at Bush Hall, London, which gave us a taster of what to expect on October 23rd. Needless to say, that was one of the best shows we’ve seen all year, so these events should be something very special indeed.
