Vocalist Barry ‘Baz’ Mills said: “We will be taking the new album out on tour to new, bigger venues. We have made the leap to some absolutely iconic venues around the UK and it will be a really proud moment for us to step out on these stages as headliners.

“This tour is 15 years in the making – we’re playing venues like Rock City, Manchester Ritz and Shepherd’s Bush Empire, to name three. Our first ever show was Carnforth Railway club (10 songs played twice!) and now we are in venues that have seen the greats come and go. It really is a testament to hard work and the rock fans in the UK, we really wouldn’t be doing this without you. See you in November!”
