In January, the band announced they had to postpone the release of ‘Endless Arcade’ from March 5 to April 30, citing only “circumstances beyond [their] control”.

In addition, they postponed their UK and European album launch tour. The run of dates will now kick off with five dates in September 2021. It will then recommence in April and May of 2022 – get tickets here.

‘Endless Arcade’, Teenage Fanclub’s eleventh studio album, will mark their first without founding bassist Gerard Love, who quit the band in 2018 after nearly three decades. It will also be the first to feature Euros Childs from Welsh alt-rock heroes Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, who joined Teenage Fanclub the same year.

“I think of an endless arcade as a city that you can wander through, with a sense of mystery, an imaginary one that goes on forever,” commented the band’s Raymond McGinley in a statement upon the album’s announcement last year.

“When it came to choosing an album title, it seemed to have something for this collection of songs.”
