Glass Animals announce Manchester Victoria Warehouse gig

Glass Animals have announced a run of European tour dates for 2021 including eight UK and Ireland dates, with a Manchester gig at Victoria Warehouse.

Having cancelled extensive international touring plans and built up towards the release of their new album through the COVID-19 pandemic, the band have now confirmed their return to the stage.

Glass Animals have also released their new track It’s All So Incredibly Loud, taken from upcoming third album Dreamland.  The album is due for release on 7 August.

It’s All So Incredibly Loud follows the bass-heavy track Heat Waves and features a clu-style keyboard melody teamed with dreamlike vocals.  Speaking about the track, Dave Bayley explains, “The entire song is only about three seconds of life. I think most people have been in a position where they have had to tell someone something that they knew was going to devastate them. Something that would change their life. It’s about the silence that occurs between those words leaving your mouth, and the other person reacting. It’s the most deafening thing I’ve ever experienced. The video is meant to be a metaphor for the build-up before that, and then the sudden explosion of quiet that lasts forever.”
