Fickle Friends have announced their biggest ever UK headline tour including a Manchester gig at Manchester Academy in October 2018.  The announcement comes as their gear up for the release of their debut album You Are Someone Else this Friday.

Fickle Friends have established themselves as the essential new British indie-pop band of 2018. They’ve played over 350 live shows together, been playlisted regularly on Radio 1 with an incredible string of singles including Brooklyn, Glue and Hello Hello, headlined a sold-out London Forum – and all before announcing their debut album.

With songs addressing social awkwardness, self-doubt, anxiety and the qualms of growing in to young adulthood, You Are Someone Else is truly an album about the joy and uncertainty of growing up a 2017 millennial.

Speaking about writing their debut album Fickle Friends’ lead singer Natti Shiner commented, “This album mostly talks about the feeling that you don’t fit in your own life, forever craving something else. I felt like I was stuck in a perpetual nightmare of bad relationships and worry for so long and this collection of songs kinda pulled me out of that. We wrote and produced the bulk of everything between Jack’s bedroom, the tour van and LA so it’s been mostly DIY with an array of producers allowing us to get that extra 20%. We always wanted to make a record that made people dance and think at the same time. If any of these songs help anyone feel cool, or strong or even just less alone then we’ll have achieved what we wanted.”
