Scottish powerhouses We Were Promised Jetpacks, are hitting the road this autumn, embarking on a world tour.
It’s been four years since We Were Promised Jetpacks released their third album, Unravelling. Since then, the band have toured across the globe, supported the likes of Explosions in the Sky and working on album four.
The band revealed on Tuesday that they’re set to hit the road later this autumn, with a mammoth tour. Kicking off on the west coast of America in Portland in September, they’ll be working there way across the states before heading back to the UK. They’ll end their run of 48 shows on December 1st in Amsterdam.
Here’s a taster of what to expect from their live shows.
The UK leg of the tour begins in November when they take on Aberdeen’s The Lemon Tree on the 14th. The band played in Liverpool’s Arts Club when they had a night off from supporting Explosions in the Sky back in 2016 but aren’t returning to Merseyside this time around.
Not all bad news, as they are coming to Manchester’s The Deaf Institute on November 19th.
The full UK tour dates are as follows:
14 – The Lemon Tree – Aberdeen, UK
15 – Saint Luke’s – Glasgow, UK
18 – Brudenell Social Club – Leeds, UK
19 – The Deaf Institute – Manchester, UK
21 – Bush Hall – London, UK
The ‘Keeping Warm’ band have (ironically) quietly been working on their fourth studio album, using The National’s studio, on the Hudson Valley in New York.
In the wake of announcing their tour, We Were Promised Jetpacks also revealed their the newest addition to the Big Scary Monsters label. After the announcements, the Edinburgh natives teased that “a lot” of new music will be played.
We’re playing a run of shows starting in September and we’re going to play a TON of new music
