Apr 21, 2022 Bookmark and Share


British duo Wet Leg (Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers) have announced some new North American tour dates and shared On Tour with Wet Leg, a new mini documentary chronicling their recent U.S. East Coast tour. It includes a brief moment where they meet Jack White in Nashville. Watch it below, followed by the new tour dates, which are on sale now.

Wet Leg released their self-titled debut album earlier in the month via Domino. It landed at #1 on the official UK album chart and in America also made it to #14 on the Billboard 200 album chart (and at #4 on the Billboard Album Sales Chart). Wet Leg also debuted at #1 on the Australian album chart and the band have also announced that they will be opening for Harry Styles on a string of dates in that country and in New Zealand, as well as playing their first shows in Japan.

Stream the album here.

Read our rave review of Wet Leg here.

Wet Leg features the songs “Chaise Longue” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), “Wet Dream,” which topped our Songs of the Week list, “Oh No,” and “Too Late Now,” the latter of which also topped our Songs of the Week list. Then they shared a video for “Oh No.” That was followed by another single, “Angelica,” shared via another one of their amusing self-directed videos. “Angelica” also made our Songs of the Week list.

Then the duo did a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR, performed “Chaise Longue” on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and stopped by SiriusXMU to perform a cover of Madonna’s “Material Girl.” Then in March Wet Leg stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where they performed “Wet Dream” on the broadcast show and “Chaise Longue” as a web-exclusive.

Wet Leg released one last pre-release single, “Ur Mum,” via another amusing video. “Ur Mum” also made our Songs of the Week list. Then the band shared a “Live on the Porch” session featuring them performing five songs from the album in their native Isle of Wight.

“Chaise Longue” was #1 on our Top 130 Songs of 2021 list.
