Psychedelic pop band Glass Animals have announced new tour dates to celebrate the release of their latest album Dreamland. The multi-date tour will take place in May 2021 – including a night at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse on Wednesday 19 May 2021.

The four-piece began in Oxford, back in 2010. Founded by singer-songwriter and producer Dave Bayley, the group also features his childhood friends Joe Seaward, Ed Irwin-Singer and Drew MacFarlane. After a couple of EPs, their debut album Zaba burst onto the scene in 2014 – including the single Black Mambo which particularly gained attention through online reviews. The band followed up in 2016 with their sophomore effort How To Be A Human Being. The record spawned five singles including Youth, which was featured on popular video game FIFA ’17. Summer 2018, saw the band face adversity after drummer Joe Seaward was involved in a serious road traffic collision. The accident and Seaward’s recovery resulted in the band having to cancel their remaining tour dates for rest of that year.

Glass Animals returned to the charts in late 2019 with single Tokyo Drifting (a duet with US rapper Denzel Curry), followed by Your Love (Déjà Vu) in February of the new year. May brought track Dreamland and the announcement of their newest album of the same name. After a delayed release, the full album Dreamland was released on all platforms in early August and is, according to The Independent, “…an excellent return to form” for the band. While we may have to wait til the Spring to celebrate the record up close and personal with the band – tickets are on sale now and begin at £22.50(+bf). Be sure to head to Gigs And Tours to grab yours quick! In the meantime, stream the album now and follow the band on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Spotify.
