Massive Wagons have announced a headline UK tour for 2023. The run of 10 shows will kick off at the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth on April 13, and wrap up on April 25 at Edinburgh's La Belle Angele. The band have just come off a UK tour with Ugly Kid Joe. 

"Straight back at it, it's what we do innit!," says frontman Baz Mills. "If you came out to see us with Ugly Kid Joe and you enjoyed the experience then why not come and see us again on the Triggered! headline tour! 

"Loved playing tracks from the new album, gonna shake it up with some more new ones cos they have been really fun to play... hopefully we are hitting up a town somewhere near you, grab a ticket and come join the fun!"

Triggered!, the band's sixth album, was released last month, and became the Lancaster rockers' second album to hit the UK Top 10, climbing three places higher than 2020’s House of Noise, which reached number 9.

"News just in... Number 6!" wrote the band (opens in new tab). "In a few days when it’s sunk in a bit and we’ve sobered up we will make the required thanks... but for now it's number 6! You are the bloody greatest!

Tickets go on general sale from 10am this Friday, November 25.
