It follows their seventh studio album Heatwave In The Cold North, which debuted at number six in the UK Official Albums Chart in May last year, giving the band their first Top 10 album since their debut album The State of Things which reached number five in 2007 and their biggest single in over a decade.

Speaking about the tour announcement, McClure said: “I’m made up to be going on tour again - it’s been too long since we last played any shows.

“Having toured Heatwave In The Cold North a couple of months before its release I’m looking forward to playing more songs from that album and maybe testing out a few from the next one.”

McClure is joined in Reverend & The Makers by guitarist Ed Cosens, keyboard and vocalist Laura McClure, bassist Antonia Pooles and drummer Ryan Jenkinson.
