Fickle Friends / November and December 2016 UK Tour

 
By on Tuesday, 6th September 2016 at 8:00 am
 

Brighton’s Fickle Friends have announced a November and December 2016 UK tour, culminating in a show at London Heaven on the 1st of December. Back in late July, the Southern group released their newest single ‘Cry Baby’. You can read Rebecca’s thoughts on the release through here; watch the accompanying part story / part performance promo video for ‘Cry Baby’ that dropped last week at the bottom of this post.

Last we heard, they were still working on the details to their debut album with producer and past Two Door Cinema Club and The 1975 collaborator Mike Crossey in Los Angeles. But we do wonder, given the timing of the live UK dates, if the LP is set for a release either before or after these shows in mid to late November. In any event, the tickets for this tour are on sale now, and they’re all listed in a handy graphic from the band below. To read more about Fickle Friends on TGTF, go here.
