Speaking of the dates frontman Murray Macleod has said: “We are delighted to announce we will be supporting Manchester Orchestra on their UK tour in October. We feel pretty honoured to be playing with a band we all admire greatly. The fact we are also touring with Taking Back Sunday and Young Guns beforehand is pretty mind blowing. We've worked exceedingly hard over the past couple of years and to be able to tour with (bigger) bands you respect/enjoy is fantastic. These shows will be our only UK dates this year so be sure to come out and have fun.

Not content with resting on their laurels the band will also be hitting the remaining festival of the year taking in Wizard Festival and performing as special guests at Southsea Fest before. A full list of shows can be seen below:
