Shut out of the tickets for Glass Animals‘ UK/Irish tour this month? Don’t fret. The Oxford quartet announced another set of UK dates for next March. These babies go on sale today at 9 AM, so be quick on the mark if you want them. They released their second album ‘How to Be a Human Being’ on Wolf Tone / Caroline International in the UK and Harvest Records in the US back in August. You can read my review of the long player through this link. For more of TGTF’s coverage of Glass Animals, go here.

It feels weird to see a photo of Elbow as a quartet, doesn’t it? But Manchester’s hometown heroes are indeed now down to four in number, and they have announced a full arena tour for the beginning of next year, their first without the services of recently departed drummer Richard Jupp. The massive tour announcement comes in support of Elbow’s forthcoming seventh studio album, whose title is yet to be announced, but which is due for release via Polydor on the 3rd of February next year.
Tickets for the following shows will be available for general sale now. You can find TGTF’s amassed coverage of Elbow right back this way. Our coverage of frontman Guy Garvey’s recent solo project right through here.

Vocal harmony group MiC Lowry have announced a handful of live dates for early next year. In what I consider dates so deftly chosen across the UK as if a military manoeuvre, the five-piece will be zigzagging their way across the UK, playing prime locations in just four shows. Tickets to these shows will be on sale this Friday, the 14th of October, at 9 AM.
Way back when, our Martin discovered them at Liverpool Sound City 2013 (when it was still a city festival, sob). To check out what they’ve been doing more recently, you can watch the video for ‘Oh Lord’ below the tour dates below. Our hopefully growing archive on the band is found through here.

After a very busy and productive year, Sheffield’s own “intelligent pop dreamers” The Crookes will close out 2016 with a special Christmas tour. Their list of December live dates will include stops in London and Leeds before wrapping up with a Saturday night show at home in Sheffield on the 17th of December. Tickets for the following shows are available now. [For a taste of their live show, you can read Carrie’s review of their gig in her current hometown of Phoenix, Arizona, coming along at 2 this afternoon. – Ed.]
The Crookes started off 2016 with their outstanding new album ‘Lucky Ones’, released back in January on their own new label Anywhere Records in the UK and on Modern Outsider in America. You can have a look back at TGTF’s full archive of coverage of The Crookes right through here.

North East DIY group and firm TGTF favourites Little Comets have announced their fourth album ‘WORHEAD’ will be released at the beginning of February 2017 on their own Smallest Label. Naturally, they have announced live dates in the UK to support the new release. Both the album will be on presale (including some promised very special versions – ooh!) and tour tickets will be on sale starting tomorrow, Friday, the 30th of September at 10 AM. We’ve written quite a bit about the Geordie band since their humblest beginning in the late Noughties, so there’s a bit of a treasure trove of TGTF coverage on them this way.
