Marmozets announce UK headline tour


Marmozets have announced a UK headline tour which will take place later this year.

They previously revealed they would head out on the road throughout this month ahead of their appearances at Reading and Leeds on August 26 and 27.

Now they’ve revealed plans to play a total of 11 headline shows in October, kicking off at The Welly Club in Hull on the 17th and wrapping up with a set at Portsmouth’s Wedgwood Rooms on the 30th of the month.

Lead guitarist Jack Bottomley says: “Everyone’s so excited to get back on the road, we really can’t wait. We’re all in a really good place and we’re totally ready for what’s to come.”

Tickets will go on sale from 9am on Friday, August 18, from SeeTickets.

The band launched their debut album The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets in 2014 via Roadrunner Records and are now putting the finishing touches on their as-yet-untitled second album, which they’re recording with producer Gil Norton.

Vocalist Becca Macintyre said of their new material: “The sound we have so far is incredible. It’s still very much Marmozets and when you listen to it, it sounds like we’ve all recorded it in the same room.

“That’s exactly how it should be. It transmits the energy that we have when we play live.”
