But the Scots have found a local hero as a replacement

1990s bass player Jamie McMorrow has left the band – but the group have already found a replacement.

The jaunt calls at:

Eindhoven Effenaar (September 12)

Groningen Vera Netherlands (13)

Bibelot Dordrecht (14)

Leffingeleuren Festival (15)

Amsterdam Paradiso (16)

Stuttgart Schocken (18)

Munich Backstage (19)

The band then head off to Australia and the USA later in the year.
