Singer will take new album 'Anxiety' on the road in the spring

Ladyhawke has announced a UK tour for April and May.

The singer, who releases her second album ‘Anxiety’ on March 19, will play 12 shows across the UK on the tour.

The gigs begin at Brighton’s Komedia venue on April 23 and run until May 11, when Ladyhawke headlines London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.

The singer has said that her second album is “more of a straight up guitar record” and has been inspired by Pixies, Blur and Nirvana.

Speaking to NME, she said of ‘Anxiety’: “It’s lot more rocky. The tone of it is definitely darker. It’s still poppy and fun, but I listened to a lot of guitar rock when I was writing it, stuff like Pixies, Blur, Nirvana and I’ve always wanted to make a guitar record. There’s no synth, but there’s some organ. It’s more of a straight-up rock record”.
