Finnish prog rock trio Von Hertzen Brothers have announced a run of live dates for the UK in May. These will be in support of the band's upcoming album, Red Alert In The Blue Forest, which will be the first album released through their own label, Doing Being Music, on March 25.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to come over and share with you the magical vibes of the Blue Forest," says Mikko Von Hertzen. "Admittedly (and due to many obstacles on the way), it’s been way too long since we played in the UK… But now the time is right, and the band is super excited and ready to do so!

"Witnessing these uncertain times, we sincerely hope that the dark clouds hanging over the world have dispersed by May and that the war is actually over. What we need now as humans is to come together with good intentions and with our hearts filled with peace and empathy. There’s no better way to do so than collectively gather to enjoy art and music. We hope you haven’t forgotten us, and we would love to see you all at the gigs!”
