The run is set for May and follows a bigger tour from last year. The dates begin in Aberdeen at the (amazing sounding) Beach Ballroom, with a London show at Electric Brixton set for 23rd May.
We spoke to the Glasgow quartet about ‘GLA’ upon its release last year. “It was all instinct, and it re-awakened our senses as to what we can achieve if we just do what we fucking want,” frontman Sam McTrusty told us.
As a team, we made a conscious decision to be selfish and do what we wanted. We wanted to, once and for all, have a record that we can listen to from start to finish without judging it. We used to be obsessed with self-criticism and it became overthinking madness. But this time, it was really just about getting as far away from where we’ve been before. It was more of an instinctive way of writing and once we made that call, everything was so fucking easy.”
