She will be showcasing her second album, which is due for release in March 2012. DJ-ing support comes from The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess. Further UK dates are expected next year.” Ladyhawke, 32, debuted in 2001 as the guitarist for the hard rock band Two Lane Blacktop. Ladyhawke’s self-titled debut album was released in September 2008. In 2009, she re-released “Paris Is Burning”, which reached number 47 on the UK charts.
