In a message to their American fans, the band said: “We’ve had an amazing summer so far playing festivals and have just confirmed a tour of America beginning in September. It goes without saying that we can’t wait to be back. We look forward to seeing you all again.

We always like to keep these thing short, but just want to say a massive thank you to every one who turned up over the summer to see us play.
