French band NOUVELLE VAGUE, who translate punk and post-punk classics through a bossa nova filter, have announced a one-off show at The Forum, Kentish Town on Tuesday 15 November.

The band, who first came to prominence in 2004 with a cover of JOY DIVISION’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, have gone on to cover songs by the likes of THE RAMONES, THE CLASH, XTC, THE CURE and THE UNDERTONES, employing an array of singers along the way, including MAGAZINE’s Barry Adamson, Ian McCulloch from ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN, THE SAINTS’ Chris Bailey and THE SPECIALS’ Terry Hall.

Tickets for the Forum show can be ordered here.

The band’s new album I Could Be Happy is due for release on 4 November and can be pre-ordered from their website.
