Tickets for the NME Generation Next Tour in October go onsale today (August 1) at 9am (BST).

The tour, which features Howler, Gross Magic and The Cast Of Cheers on the bill, will take in 11 venues across the UK towards the end of October.

The tour kicks off on October 19 at Bournemouth’s Old Fire Station and runs until October 31 when the three bands play Brighton’s Haunt.


The trek also features shows in Bristol, Norwich, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield, London, Stoke and Nottingham.

Speaking about the tour, Howler frontman Jordan Gatesmith told NME: “We have abandoned our hometown of Minneapolis for a lifetime on the road. But that’s OK – rest is for the weak. The UK has been good to us this year and we’re looking forward to turning young people of Britain into a sweaty and excitable mess. See you in October.”
