Mystery Jets have announced an extensive UK tour for later this year.
The London indie band, who released their fourth album ‘Radlands’ earlier this year, have lined up 14 dates, which will take place across November.
The gigs begin at O2 Academy Oxford on November 4 and run until November 29 when the band headline London’s Royal Festival Hall. The tour also includes stops in Cambridge, Brighton, Bournemouth, Norwich, Leeds, Leicester, Glasgow, Liverpool, Preston, Sheffield, Manchester and Birmingham.
‘Radlands’ was produced by Dan Carey and released via Rough Trade Records. It was mostly recorded in Austin, Texas last summer before being completed earlier this year in south London.
The band had previously said that they opted to record the album in “the furthest place from everything we knew” and that they had actually borrowed all their equipment from the Austin studio to make the album.
Singer Blaine Harrison said: “All we brought on the plane were the guitars on our backs, so we ended up borrowing all this amazing valve gear from an old guy called Jack who ran a little studio up in the hills – which is why the songs sound the way they do. In the daytime we wrote lyrics on the porch and in the evenings a family of deer would gather in the backyard to hear us play.”
Mystery Jets are also booked to play Reading And Leeds Festivals later this month.
