Fat White Family announce biggest UK headline shows to date

‘The Tour of Tenderness’ takes place this summer, including dates with The Growlers.

Ahead of their appearances at Latitude and Glastonbury, sweaty basement gig dwellers Fat White Family are aiming slightly higher with a newly announced run of UK dates.

Their biggest headline shows to date are rounding off with a performance at London’s Electric Ballroom this September.

They’re also due to play a run of shows with The Growlers this August (both bands are tossing a coin before each show to see who headlines), before taking on Reading & Leeds Festivals.

Fat White Family recently announced their own PIAS offshoot label, Without Consent.
