British Sea Power have unveiled the first track from their forthcoming new album – listen to it below.

The track, 'Machineries Of Joy', is the first single from the band's forthcoming fifth album of the same name, which is slated for release on April 1. The follow-up to and the follow-up to 2011's 'Valhalla Dancehall', 'Machineries of Joy' was written in the mountains in north Wales and recorded in their Brighton hometown.

"We’d like to think the album is warm and restorative," singer Yan says in a press statement. "Various things are touched on in the words – Franciscan monks, ketamine, French female bodybuilders-turned-erotic movie stars. The world often seems a mad, hysterical place at the moment. You can’t really be oblivious to that, but we’d like the record to be an antidote – a nice game of cards in pleasant company."

The album release will be accompanied by a full UK tour kicking off in Exeter on April 4 and finishing up in London's Shepherds Bush Empire.

British Sea Power will play:

Exeter Phoenix (April 4)
Birmingham Library (5)
Newcastle University (6)
Glasgow Oran Mor (7)
Leeds Met University (9)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (10)
Manchester Gorilla (12)
Cardiff Coal Exchange (14)
Portsmouth Wedgewood (15)
Norwich Waterfront (16)
London O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire (17)
