British Sea Power will hit the road in April.
To celebrate the release of their first new material in four years, British Sea Power have confirmed a handful of UK tour dates this Spring.
The announcement comes as they gear up to release Let The Dancers Inherit The Party on the 31 March 2017.
“It was made to a background of politicians perfecting the art of unabashed lying, of social-media echo chambers, of click-bait and electronic Tonka Toys to keep us entertained and befuddle,” guitarist Martin Noble says of the album.
“All this can easily make the individual feel futile. But I think we’ve ended up addressing this confusion in an invigorating way, rather than imprisoning the listener in melancholy. Musically, it’s our most direct album and maybe the first one where we maintain a coherent mood from start to finish. Perhaps a little clarity isn’t a bad thing at this point.”
“There wasn’t a plan to create an album with any particular subject matter but we’ve kind of ended up with a case of ’think global, act local’ – an album where individuals are dealing with their domestic and personal lives against a background of uncontrollable international lunacy.”
The band have also unveiled their new track Bad Bohemian, available to listen to below.
Those tour dates look like this:
6 April – Trinity, Bristol
7 April – Church, Leeds
8 April – Riverside, Newcastle
9 April – Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh
11 April – 02 Ritz, Manchester
12 April – 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
13 April – 02 Academy 2, Birmingham
