Public Service Broadcasting have announced a 12-date UK tour.

The run of shows will get underway on October 13 at Cardiff’s Great Hall and wrap up with a performance at London’s Eventim Apollo on the 26th of the month.

The dates have been scheduled in support of the band’s upcoming album Every Valley, which will be released on July 7.

J. Willgoose, Esq. says: “The best part of any album release is getting the chance to play it live in front of an audience. We can’t wait to share this record with people and get out there and play the new material later this year.”

The shows will also feature a brand new set which has been devised by “all-round visual mastermind, Mr. B” which will replace Public Service Broadcasting’s mechanised tribute to Sputnik.

The band recently released a video for their new track Progress featuring Camera Obscura’s Tracyanne Campbell.

Speaking about the cast of collaborators on the follow-up to 2015’s The Race For Space, Willgoose said: “One of the most exciting things about making this album was working with a whole cast of collaborators and musicians.

“From the local strings players, the Beaufort Male Choir, and our own brass musicians, all the way through to breakthrough acts like Haiku Salut and more established artists like 9Bach’s Lisa Jên Brown, Tracyanne Campbell and a musical hero to me and countless others, James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers.

“I’m so happy – honoured and humbled, in fact – that we’ve ended up with all of them on the album. I feel like they’ve considerably enriched and enhanced our sound and I think the record is all the better for it.”

Every Valley is now available for pre-order, while a full list of UK dates can be seen below.
