The tour confirmation comes after the band unveiled ‘People’ last month – described by NME as “a bone-rattling rallying cry for humankind to sort their shit out”.
“‘People’ is the band’s heaviest and most confrontational moment yet. On it, the band finally embracing their love of cult US hardcore bands, for a thundering punk-rock slapper, that whiffs of the same strain as desert-dudes Queens of The Stone Age, via the pop sensibilities of Elastica. It’s electrifying stuff,” NME wrote.
The first track from the record came in the form of ‘The 1975’ – which saw the band teaming up with climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
