Wolf Alice have announced a UK & Ireland tour for January 2022, their first headline shows since 2018. The tour will take the band to Manchester, Bristol, London, Glasgow, Dublin and more, performing songs from their eagerly-anticipated third album Blue Weekend, including new single “The Last Man On Earth”.
Blue Weekend is the follow up to the 2018 Mercury Prize winning album Visions Of A Life and is set for release on 11 June 2021 via Dirty Hit.
A press release explains that creating a follow-up to Visions Of A Life was a daunting task. The record was a huge success, which subsequently led to many months spent on tour – with intercontinental flights, hotels and long-bus journeys taking a toll on the band.
The band decamped to an Airbnb in Somerset, and it was there that they reconfigured who they were together, far away from festival stages, tour buses, awards shows, and fans.
Rowsell’s personal storytelling is said to be at the core of Blue Weekend, an album that is said to see Wolf Alice embrace a newfound boldness and vulnerability in equal measure.
Tickets for Wolf Alice January 2022 UK & Ireland tour go on general sale on Friday 26 March 2021 at 9AM. See the full list of tour dates below.
