“Playing some very intimate UK shows to celebrate the release of my new album ‘Seventeen Going Under’!” he wrote. “We’re partnering with indie record stores and ticket bundles are on sale tomorrow 10am BST, be quick.”

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (October 1) via a number of independent record stores. You can find out more information here and see the full list of dates below.

Speaking to NME earlier this year, Fender said of ‘Seventeen Going Under’: “As a record I think this one is leagues ahead [of debut album ‘Hypersonic Missiles’]. I’m more proud of this than anything I’ve ever done. It’s probably the best thing I’ve done in my life.

“I just hope people love it as much as I do. With the first album, a lot of those songs were written when I was 19, so I was over half of it [by the time it was released]. Whereas this one is where I’m at now.”

He added: “At the same time, this record is probably going to piss a lot of people off.”
