Arcane Roots have announced a headline tour of the UK and Europe for early next year.

They’ve scheduled 11 dates in February and March 2018 in support of their latest album Melancholia Hymns, which launched in September via Easy Life/Red Essential.

Arcane Roots will be supported by Brutus on their UK shows, while Jamie Lenman will appear on stage on the band’s dates in mainland Europe.

Lenman says: “I’m super duper psyched, not only to be returning to Germany and playing Amsterdam for the first time, but to be doing it in support of a band who are both completely awesome and also my very good personal friends. It’s going to be gigantic.”
