The Vintage Caravan will return to the UK for their first headline tour in October, they’ve confirmed.
They’ll play five dates in support of third album Arrival, which was launched in May via Nuclear Blast. The shows follow support slots with The Blues Pills and Grand Magus.
Frontman Oskar Logi recently said: “We tried to please ourselves more than worry about what others will think. Our last album, Voyage, was released in 2012, so we had almost three years to work on Arrival.
“We widened our spectrum a bit sound-wise. We went a bit heavier, a bit darker, more prog. I think we got a good balance, and I think the songwriting is more mature. We were listening to a lot of Rush!”
Tickets are on sale now. The UK dates are in addiction to their current European tour and a previously-announced appearance in London with Avatarium in November.
