Canada’s Alvvays will be releasing their new single ‘Adult Diversion’ 22nd June, just before the band embark on their biggest ever UK tour, which includes shows at Reading and Leeds Festival and finishes with a headline show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. The band have also been confirmed to play this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Taken from their acclaimed self-titled debut, released via Transgressive Records, ‘Adult Diversion’s jangly rhythms conceal a dark lyrical theme, helping it to become a firm live favourite. Following an incredible 2014, which saw their album named as one of the best of year from the likes of Rolling Stone, NME and DIY and Best Fit, Alvvays have toured relentlessly. Their forthcoming tour will be the last UK trip in support of their current album, before the band record new material.
Tickets for all shows are available now.
