Kicking off at Trinity Centre in Bristol on August 28, the stint continues with stop-offs at Brighton’s Old Market Theatre (September 1), Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms (September 2) and Glasgow’s SWG3 Studio Warehouse (September 5).

The official ‘Live! On Stage!’ tour poster also includes Gang Of Youths’ planned appearances at London’s All Points East festival on August 30 and Manchester’s Neighbourhood Weekender on September 4.

‘The Angel Of 8th Ave.’ marked the group’s first new material in four years, following on from their second album ‘Go Farther In Lightness’ (released in 2017).

Speaking to NME upon the single’s arrival, Gang Of Youths explained that it was an “obvious choice” to introduce their upcoming third record, which frontman Dave Le’aupepe said presents “more of a spirit of anarchy and collaboration”.

“We don’t have these set positions anymore, which gives us space to fuck around,” he told NME. “Whether or not that’s good, I don’t fucking know, dude, but it’s been pretty rewarding because we’ve had fuck all to do for 18 months.”

As for their All Points East appearance alongside FoalsBombay Bicycle Club and more, Tom Hobden said: “For me, it’s great to be on the bill with all those bands that I’m familiar with. There’s no way that I can’t imagine these songs getting a reaction.”
