The tour announcement comes ahead of Fender releasing his anticipated debut album ‘Hypersonic Missiles’ on August 9, following on from his debut EP last year.

Speaking to NME, Fender previously explained how the title track was influenced by his love of Bruce Springsteen.

“I’ve been fucking weaned on him. My brother bought us ‘Born To Run’ when I was 14 or 15 and it just fucking changed my world,” Fender explained.

“At first I was a bit confused by this slightly over-the-top production, but the words were just so good. Lyrically, ‘Born To Run’ is one of the best albums out there and it changed my world when I heard it.

“I’d never heard rock music that sounded that fresh, even though that record was released in 1975. I’ve also always wanted to do that Phil Spector production and add a saxophone to it.”

He added: “I’d say it’s a nod to Bruce Springsteen, although my publisher says it’s a headbutt.”

He’ll be supporting Mumford & Sons at All Points East in London this June. Visit here for tickets and more information.
