Delphic have announced a UK tour for later this year.
The nine-date tour takes place in October and will see the band roadtesting material from their as yet untitled second album.
The run of shows kicks off on October 22 at Glasgow Arches and runs until November 1 when the band headline London’s Village Underground. The tour also includes stops in Newcastle, Norwich, Nottingham, Sheffield, Portsmouth, Manchester and Bristol.
The Manchester trio have been working on the follow-up to their 2010 debut album ‘Acolyte’ for the last 18 months and have been working Bombay Bicycle Club producer Ben Allen and DFA Records co-founder Tim Goldsworthy.
When asked about why their second album had taken so long to put together, band leader Rick Boardman told NME: “We’re trying to make something truly great. We’re not interested in the rock n’roll lifestyle. We didn’t want to release something that we would mean we could just go back on tour and have fun. We just want to make a really great record.”
