Thrice will be back in the UK early next year on The Artist in the Ambulance 20th anniversary tour!

The band will be performing the album in full!

Support for the U.K. dates comes from Palm Reader.

On the upcoming tour, Thrice vocalist Dustin Kensrue shares, “The Artist in the Ambulance has played such a huge part in the history of the band. These songs have stood the test of time better than we could have known when we wrote them. But they’ve also subtly shifted and grown with us as we’ve played them at shows over the last 20 years, which is why it was so much fun to revisit them in the studio, and also why we are so excited to play the whole record live, especially for the first time in its entirety.”

Heavy Lungs have announced some live dates for later this year!

“Ah yes the life affirming smell of service station Greggs,” say the band of the upcoming tour dates, “the casino bit you never go in, the numb buttocks of the long late night drives, the longing glances exchanged with strangers in McDonalds queue, gallons of van temperature piss, the cathartic bliss of performing, olympic loads ins, disco loadouts, green rooms, blue mondays, the warm embrace of the fans. In other words: perfection we cannot wait to experience again. Brazil will have to wait but the lucky residents of the cities below are in for the grandest show on earth—Heavy Lungs live and uncut.”
