The John Hackett Band have announced a UK tour.

The run of dates have been lined up in support of their latest album We Are Not Alone, which arrived last year via Esoteric Records.

The first show will take place at Greystones in Sheffield on May 5, with the final concert planned for the Boston Music Rooms in London on December 9.

A statement on the 2017 release reads: “With a heady and eclectic mix of rock-solid songwriting, swirling mellotron and at times, free improvisation, the virtuosic flute and guitar performances shine through the memorable compositions.”

John’s brother Steve Hackett appeared on album track Never Gonna Make A Dime playing harmonica. Watch the black and white studio video below.
