Liam Fray and co will be heading out on the road this autumn to support their new album Mapping The Rendezvous. PLUS! There's a new single on the way, too.
The Middleton band are set to release their fifth album Mapping The Rendezvous, on 21 October and will head out around the UK in the following weeks. The band announced the shows on social media this evening (29th August).
Speaking to Radio X backstage at Leeds Festival over the weekend, frontman Liam Fray explained that the shows would be something special for fans.
“We’re doing bigger venues, we’re doing three arenas, " he said. "We’re doing stuff with the lights, we’re gonna change the set quite a lot. It’s gonna be new for people. If you’ve already been to see us, it’s gonna be ten times better. It’s not going to be just plug in and play.”
Support for all shows will be Clean Cut Kid. Main support in Glasgow will be The View. In Leeds and Liverpool main support will be Milburn.
Courteeners have also announced details of a new single and their biggest UK tour to date. No One Will Ever Replace Us is an instant anthem dedicated to “a very British kind of summertime love”.
Liam says of the song, “It’s about finding love in the unlikely surroundings of Glastonbury. There’s almost an under-pinning fear about when you’ve got something so good, and you don’t want it to end.”
The track is available digitally (and as an instant grat with album pre-orders) from Tuesday 30 August.
No One Will Ever Replace Us is the second track taken from Courteeners fifth album, Mapping the Rendevous, which is released on 21 October.
