Canadian post-rocker Alex Henry Foster and his band The Long Shadows, will support The Pineapple Thief on their upcoming 18-date European tour through October.

It will be the first time Foster has played these shores since supporting ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead in early 2020, so Bruce Soord's invitation to join the band for live dates was more than timely. You can watch a video trailer for the dates below.

Foster used the lockdown period to host several online events, including an online event with Prog Magazine last May, thus building a solid bond with his followers by opening up on the topics of depression, loneliness and mental illness, but mostly, by inviting them to care for others, to hope for a brighter day and to keep on dreaming.

Alex Henry Foster & The Long Shadows released their live album Standing Under Bright Lights in April.
