And they're giving fans the opportunity to join them...

Mystery Jets have announced that they will be hosting an evening of conversation that will address climate change, mental health, gender equality and more.

The band will hold a series of roundtable talks entitled Speakers’ Corner at an as yet unrevealed Central London location inspired by the themes of their upcoming seventh album, ‘A Billion Heartbeats’.

Taking place on January 21, a description of the event reads: “A series of filmed round table talks with a host of incredible activists, writers and comedians joining us to tackle some of the biggest discussions today, including; the climate emergency, gender equality, mental health, the refugee crisis and inclusivity.”

Not only postponing the release of their new album, but Mystery Jets were also forced to reschedule a series of tour dates for their UK tour. It has now been confirmed that the new dates will take place in April.
