The NME Generation Next tour kicks off in Bournemouth tonight with Howler, The Cast Of Cheers and Gross Magic set to play The Old Fire Station venue.

All three bands will stay for the duration of the tour, with gigs in Bristol and Norwich scheduled for Saturday and Sunday this weekend. The trek also features shows in Brighton, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield, London, Stoke and Nottingham

Speaking to NME about the tour, Howler's Jordan Gatesmith said:

There's always mischief, but you never know when or how it's going to happen. But of course something awful is going to happen; someone's gonna break bones, someone's gonna have to go to the hospital.

The Cast Of Cheers are also looking forward to a good time with Conor Adams telling us how, "If you give a bunch of Irish people free booze, mischief just happens."

The NME Generation Next tour runs from tonight until the end of October with Splashh joining the party for one night at London's KOKO on October 30. If you're attending, Tweet your thoughts with the hashtag #NMEGenNext.
