These New Puritans have announced details of an October UK tour.
The band, who released their third album ‘Field Of Reeds’ earlier this year, will play six gigs on the tour including a homecoming show at London’s Electric in Brixton. Starting in Manchester on October 11, These New Puritans will play shows in Bristol, Leeds, London and Glasgow before ending the tour in Gateshead at The Sage on October 18.
Meanwhile, the band recently played a brand new song in session for Radio 1. The track, which is titled ‘And It’s Risen’, was performed for Zane Lowe’s radio show and does not appear on ‘Field Of Reeds’. The band played three songs in total, including ‘Fragment Two’ and ‘Organ Eternal’. Listen to the session here.
Speaking about the recording of ‘Field Of Reeds’, Jack Barnett of the band revealed: “I like the sense with this music that you are surrounded by people playing instruments. You can hear someone move or breathe before they begin playing.”
These New Puritans will play:
Manchester Gorilla (October 11)
Bristol Simple Things Festival (12)
London Brixton Electric (15)
Leeds Vox (16)
Glasgow Oran Mor (17)
