They will kick off the European leg of the tour on May 30 in Rotterdam, ending on June 17 in Barcelona.

“We have made the decision to re-schedule our Autumn tour to 2021,” the band wrote on social media. “A LIFE show is about letting go, moving about, being safe & embracing music & each other. This wasn’t something we were confident we could deliver this year. The new dates will happen in May and June, something to look forward to for all of us!”

We have made the decision to re-schedule our Autumn tour to 2021. A LIFE show is about letting go, moving about, being safe & embracing music & each other. This wasn't something we were confident we could deliver this year. The new dates will happen in May and June, something to look forward to for all of us! (Tickets in bio) We're still working on rescheduling our dates for France and will announce new dates there in due course. In the meantime, we are putting on a BIG live stream event next week on 20th August – we realise it isn't the same, but we are putting a lot of work into it & are looking forward to seeing as many of you there to make the best of what we have to work with! Many thanks and big loves, from all at LIFE HQ

Meanwhile, IDLES have created a huge new remix of Hull four-piece LIFE‘s recent single ‘Switching On’.

The standalone single follows LIFE’s 2019 album ‘A Picture Of Good Health’, and has been warped into an intimidating, industrial new beast by IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen.

Speaking of the new remix, Bowen said: “I have watched LIFE play live well over 100 times and one thing that I really wanted to maintain through the remix is how incredibly tight they are as a band, so I left everything from the original in there. There was something new they were bringing with the song, there’s that assured LIFE sound central but there are experiments in electronics and noise coming closer to the surface.”
