The ‘Kind’ tour, which is named after their forthcoming album, will see the band perform in Sheffield, Birmingham, Brighton, Bournemouth, London, Nottingham, Newcastle, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Manchester, before finishing the run with two nights at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on September 27.
The band have also shared new track ‘Bust This Town’, which you can listen to below.
Of the track, frontman Kelly Jones said: “‘Bust This Town’ is a song about escapism. Two lovers or friends or whoever you want to interpret them to be, finally find the courage to leave the small town they are stuck in and head on down the road breaking all the rules along the way. It’s the opener of side 2 of the album, with a four on the floor beat it should be a strong resident in the upcoming tour dates”.

Meanwhile, Jones recently admitted that he almost quit the band following their last tour in 2018.
”Our last gig of the world tour was September 2018, in Brooklyn – I was done, had written no songs, nothing new, I thought I felt like quitting,” he said.
Jones said that after spending a bit of time away from his bandmates, though, he got some ideas for songs on their forthcoming LP ‘Kind, which is out on October 25.
