First fruits of ATP and Detour partnership see ace Swedes following up their Supersonic performance

Ace Swedish psychedelic afrobeat loons Goat have announced that they'll be playing a headline London show.

The gig will be at the Scale on June 27, and tickets will go on sale next Tuesday, January 29, at 10am - for more details, head here.

It's been made possible through a partnership of ATP and Songkick's new Detour service which allows fans to vote for bands they want to see playing in their town and then pledge to buy tickets to ensure the show happens.

We here at tQ are huge fans of the band, slotting them into our best albums of 2012 countdown.
