The band – the project of former Dead Pretties frontman Jacob Slater – emerged last year with debut single ‘Teal’ and have shared a handful of singles since.
In June, he announced details of his debut album ‘Cub’ and a headline show in London. The album was released on September 16 via Communion.
Slater has now confirmed a UK and Ireland tour for next year, which will kick off in Southampton on March 26, before heading to cities like Newcastle, Glasgow, Brighton, London and Dublin. The tour finishes on April 16 in Galway.

Speaking to NME earlier this month, Slater said of his debut solo album: “I found it more interesting to write about other people than me. A lot of these songs were written in my late-teens and early-20s, and I wasn’t sure if I had a specific voice to tell those stories.
“I thought it’d be better to look at people around me who’d impacted my life rather than running the risk of sounding up my own arse, or looking back and not being happy with what I said. I don’t know what my feelings are half the time.”
In a four-star review, NME described ‘Cub’ as “a goodbye to the Jacob Slater we previously knew, and a hugely exciting welcome to a songwriter finally becoming himself. You can envisage him making records like this for decades to come.”
