The Bees have confirmed a series of summer shows to roadtest new material.

The band are currently recording their third album ‘Octopus’ on their native Isle Of Wight, but will venture out of the studio to test out songs, including a Highlands And Islands tour which takes place exclusively in Scotland during August.

“We’re really excited to get back out there again,” explained the band’s Aaron Fletcher of the dates. “We’re particularly excited about the Scottish dates, we’ve always loved playing up there, the crowds are amazing.”
