The band are promising a variety of support across the dates, with West Country novelty act The Wurzels set to join the band as special guests in London.

“It’ll be an honour to play on the same stage as The Wurzels,” said British Sea Power singer Yan. “We can only advise people to grab a flagon of Crippplecock scrumpy and head for The Forum. Come on everybody, Ooh ahhr, just a little bit…”

Meanwhile the band’s date at Carnglaze Caverns will be a benefit in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
