The band get mellow around the release of new album 'Road To Rouen'...

SUPERGRASS are to premiere their new album ’ROAD TO ROUEN’ with an acoustic tour in August.

The band will play seven small shows to roadtest the album, which is released on August 15.

Singer Gaz Coombes said: “It’s gonna be interesting using these little theatres & clubs to show people another musical side of the band. It’s not something we’ve really done before in this way, so we’re excited about it. We’ll have an old friend playing percussion alongside Danny & his homemade drum kit, new songs and a few old ones that we’ve not tried before, and a little stage set to give it a real close, mellow, theatrical vibe.”

The tour visits:

Manchester Royal Northern College of Music (August 8)

Glasgow Oran Mor (9)

Birmingham Glee Club (10)

Brighton Komedia (11)

Oxford Playhouse (13)

Leeds City Varieties (16)

London Hammersmith Working Men’s Club (17)
