British Sea Power are set to launch their new album, 'Machineries Of Joy', with a event that will feature a boat trip, 'communist table tennis' and a mystery bus tour.

Taking place in London on April 3 – two days after the album's release on April 1 – the band will start the Boat! Bus! Guitars! event at 6pm [GMT] on Westminster Pier with a cruise on the Thames.

This will be followed by a mystery tour in a British Sea Power branded bus. The bus trip is set to include dancers, the aforementioned communist table tennis, a beer bar and historical sight-seeing.

After the bus tour, British Sea Power will play live in a secret London venue. For more information and ticket details, visit Britishseapower.co.uk.

'Machineries Of Joy' is the follow-up to 2011's 'Valhalla Dancehall'. It 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 has said of the record.

"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)
