One of Britain’s finest rising bands, The Snuts, have today announced a nine-date headline UK tour, including a gig in Sunderland.

The band, who play anthemic indie-rock, have just released their debut single All Your Friends on the Parlophone label.

Now Jack Cochrane, Joe McGillveray, Callum Wilson and Jordan Mackay will back up the release with a series of gigs, beginning at Independent in Sunderland on Thursday, September 12.

Produced by Inflo (Karen O/Danger Mouse, Michael Kiwanuka, Little Simz), the track possesses an irresistibly catchy raw edge and a massive chorus.

The video, directed by Ronan Corrigan and Hope Kemp, sees the band are literally caught up in a shopping channel TV advert fuelled by their much-loved Buckfast.

Hailing from Whitburn, West Lothian, The Snuts already have a strong following in Scotland, and have enjoyed support from the likes of BBC 6 Music and Radio 1.

They have a big summer of festivals ahead, followed by their own headline tour, before joining Lewis Capaldi as special guests on his November UK tour.

Thursday, September 12th: SUNDERLAND, Independent

Friday, September 13th: SHEFFIELD, Leadmill
