Black Country, New Road announce socially distanced UK tour

In support of their brand new album 'For The First Time'

Black Country, New Road have announced a set of socially distanced UK tour dates for this summer.

The band have paired the gig news with the release today (February 5) of their debut album ‘For The First Time’, with the band expressing their “collective sense of relief” in a statement about the arrival of the record.

“We think this record gives an honest representation of the way we sound when we come together and play music. All of the good moments and some of the less good moments too,” the band continued.


“It’s a good start, we look forward to the music being available to people and in equal parts look forward to moving on from this music. Before the release of this record we are already hard at work preparing new music.”

Black Country, New Road have now announced a socially distanced tour for June, which includes rescheduled dates at the Islington Assembly Hall in London which had been set to take place in April.

The pre-sale for the newly announced June tour begins next Friday (February 12), and will be available to anyone who buys the band’s new album on any format from the Black Country, New Road store, Bandcamp or Ninja Tune store from today until Wednesday night (February 10).
