The Twilight Sad have announced their first run of 2019 shows.

The Scottish outfit will play dates in Manchester, London and Glasgow in February and March in support of their upcoming album It Won't Be Like This All The Time.

The follow-up to 2014’s Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave will launch on January 18 via Rock Action Records on CD, 2LP and on digital platforms.

A ticket pre-sale for the three 2019 show will begin tomorrow (September 26) at 9am GMT and go on general sale on Friday.

Speaking to NME about the record, guitarist Andy MacFarlane previously said: “It all came together really well. To me, it’s like a different band almost. 

"I did a stupid thing of writing loads of music, then giving it to vocalist James Graham to write stuff over… then I deleted all the music. So then I wrote another album under it."

He added: “I think we just needed to shake up the routine. One of our mates bought us those Brian Eno oblique strategy cards. I picked one out and it was like, ‘Delete everything, must try harder, don’t tell James.'

“The aim was to try and do stuff that we’d enjoy playing live, to make it more interesting for ourselves as well as everyone else.”

The Twilight Sad will head out on the road across North America throughout October and November before returning to the UK and Europe.
