Squid have announced details of a new socially distanced UK tour, which will see them play work-in-progress new music.
It comes as the Bristol-based band prepare to release their debut album ‘Bright Green Field’ via Warp next month.

The new ‘Fieldworks’ tour will take place after the release of the album but prior to their previously-announced full autumn tour, and see them play two shows back-to-back in a number of the cities on the run.
Discussing the idea behind the tour, the band said: “With all this time rooted in one place we’ve been hard at work writing new music together. We thought that this little tour of places, off the beaten track, would be a great opportunity to show you all some new tunes and some REALLY new tunes.
“We can’t wait to play some places that aren’t on the traditional touring circuit and see all your faces.”
