The Pineapple Thief frontman Bruce Soord has announced a run of live dates throughout the EU and UK for October.

Soord is currently applying the finishing touches to a new solo album, the follow-up to 2019's second solo release All This Will Be Yours (Soord released his debut self-titled solo album in 2015). Although there is little information about the new record at the tie of writing, the fact that the tour is entitled 'Luminescence Tour 2023' is a big clue as to the title of the new album.

"This is a very rare outing for me, going on the road with my trio,"says Soord. "The show will feature my solo material as well as my favourite The Pineapple Thief songs. It will be in an ‘evening with’ kind of atmosphere, something I’m really looking forward to."

The Pineapple Thief have just released How Did We Find Our Way: 1999 - 2006, an eight-disc box set which charts the band's progress from 1999's Abducting The Unicorn through to Little Man in 2006.
