The band were originally meant to head out on the road in May, with dates stretching through to July.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions, the tour has now been rescheduled until next year. The dates will instead kick off in January 2022, beginning with four shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
