Rudely Interrupted To Play Special UN Gig, Tour UK and North America
Because we all know how much Ban Ki-Moon likes to rock the party, the Melbourne indie outfit Rudely Interrupted have been invited to play the United Nations’ New York headquarters.

The Aussie six-piece — five of whom have a range of intellectual and physical disabilities (blindness, deafness, aspergers and Down syndrome) — will perform for world leaders at the Dag Hammarskjold Auditorium to mark International Day for People with Disabilities on December 3. The band then plan to embark on a mini U.S. and UK tour, with a date in Toronto fitting in somewhere along the way. The upcoming dates by Rudely Interrupted, who liken their sound to "Joy Division having a Gary Numan party while eating pitch perfect cookies,” come in support of the group’s debut EP, Don’t Break My Heart, and the rock in general.

The post-UN dates are expected to be announced shortly via the group’s MySpace page. In the meantime, below you’ll find Rudely Interrupted’s lead EP single, "Don't Break my Heart,” which attempts to answer the universal question: Can you really die from a broken heart?
