Refused confirm 2016 Euro tour

Refused have announced a European tour for early 2016 – with five UK dates included.

The Swedish hardcore punks hit the road on February 26, starting in Malmo in their homeland. They’ll play shows in Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Brighton and Birmingham on the tour in support of latest album Freedom, released earlier this year.

Anna von Hausswolff will be the main support for the UK shows.

Refused say: “We’re excited to finally be able to do a few more shows throughout the UK in the spring and have Anna von Hausswolff on the tour with us for these. See you soon.”

Tickets are available from the band’s official website and they’ve teamed up with the MOAS charity. Refused add: “Purchases made through will have the option to make a donation to MOAS and we will match all donations.

“MOAS is dedicated to preventing loss of life at sea by providing assistance to migrants who find themselves in distress while crossing the Mediterranean Sea in unsafe vessels.”
