Culture Abuse reveal headline UK and European tour

Culture Abuse have announced a headline tour of the UK and Europe for later this year.

The San Francisco outfit have lined up a total of 26 dates throughout October and November in support of their new album Bay Dream, which was released last week via Epitaph Records.

They’ll kick off the run with nine shows across the UK before hitting mainland Europe. They'll then return to the UK and wrap up the tour with a set at the Sheffield Foundry on November 17.

A ticket pre-sale will take place at 10am local time on Wednesday (June 27). 

Speaking about the new album, frontman David Kelling said: ”I wrote songs in my head until I got a guitar, just going after the sound that I think each song needs individually. So the sound of the album is in constant change."

Prior to the newly announced tour dates, Culture Abuse will play three Rough Trade in-store performances in the UK in July.
