Two years since their noted first album, Everything Everything are on the road with new material.

The alternative rock/pop band have followed up 2010’s Man Alive with this year’s Arc.

Everything Everything are difficult to categorise, drawing their sound from art rock, indie pop, progressive rock and contemporary R&B.

For the second album they’ve also taken inspiration from a wide range of subjects and situations.

The summer 2011 riots, as viewed from a Salford vantage point, played a part, as did frontman Jonathan Higgs’ reading up on futurology.

Different environments, whether a remote Cumbrian shed or a windy inner-city arena, fed into the process.

Everything Everything play the Pyramids, Southsea on Wednesday.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are £15 in advance. Visit pyramids-live.co.uk/events

They are supported by Dutch Uncles and Outfit.

Outfit are on tour in support slots and with their own shows following the release of their debut Performance. The album combines live instrumentation with heavily processed samples.

They draw influence from Talking Heads, Portishead and Radiohead.
