Liverpool band the Zutons, who released their spectacular debut album Who Killed the Zutons? in April, play a sold-out gig at the UEA, Norwich, on Wednesday night.

Who Killed the Zutons?, produced by the Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie, was shortlisted for the Nationwide Mercury Prize and enjoyed great critical praise upon its release. The album, which reached gold status last week and re-entered the charts at number 15, has spawned three top 30 hit singles, Pressure Point, You Will, You Won't and Remember Me.

2004 has seen the Zutons perform at Glastonbury, Oxygen, T in the Park and V festivals. According to press reports, the band pulled some of the biggest crowds at all four festivals. They also played the Fuji Festival in Japan and toured the US in August.

This tour coincides with the release of the Zutons' new single Don't Ever Think (Too Much) released through Deltasonic. The new song, not available on their debut album, was produced by Liam Watson famous for his work on the White Stripes' Elephant album.Support comes from the Futureheads. Named after the early Flaming Lips' song Hit to Death in the Future Head, the four-piece band from Sunderland will be playing songs from their long awaited debut album The Futureheads which was released in July.

Door 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 (returns only). Box office: 01603 508050 or www.ueaticketbookings.co.uk
