Manchester post-punkers PINS have announced details of a new UK and Ireland tour.
The band - who have also put together a short film - will begin on 3rd November in Folkestone, and finish a couple of weeks later at Dublin’s Academy 2 on 17th November.
The dates are:

11 Leeds Belgrave Music Hall

The film, meanwhile, was made by Olivier Richomme and Sarah Jenny Johnson, and features a video for each track on the band’s latest EP, ‘Bad Thing’. The band say of the 20-minute story “In many ways the video is an ode to Manchester, from filming on the eerie surrounding moors to partying in a former public toilet, Temple Bar, with Shameless’ own Alice Barrie! We filmed in a few of our favourite venues and bars in Manchester and we just got to have some drinks and listen to music whilst the filming went on. We also filmed on the moors as we wanted some contrast and calm to the chaotic scenes of the night before. The snow was perfect, and so was the pastel sunset”.

The 360-degree nature has the crowd flanking all corners of the stage, causing for one giant mosh pit.
The track is the third single from ‘Wild Nights’
Straight out of the ’50s, ‘Everyone Says’ is all about overcoming the dark days.
‘Wild Nights’ feels like a step forward for Pins.
