Manchester alt-poppers to hit the road in support of new album 'Arc'

Everything Everything have announced details of a UK and Irish tour in February 2013.

The Manchester art-rockers will 13 dates in support of their forthcoming second album ‘Arc’, which is due for release on January 14 next year. The LP is the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut record ‘Man Alive’ and has once again been produced by Bat For Lashes collaborator David Kosten.

Speaking to NME about the concept behind the album, bassist Jeremy Pritchard said that the title predicts the end of the world as we know it. “It has the biggest theme of all: the coming environmental disaster. The arc of the title is the arc of the shape of human civilization – I think we’re at the beginning of the downward curve.”

‘Kemosabe’, the second single from the album, which follows on from lead single ‘Cough Cough’, will be released on January 7.
