The gig at the Manchester venue is one of 11 UK dates they have confirmed. The run opens at Birmingham’s Hare & Hounds in November.
News of the tour co-incides with confirmation of the band’s upcoming new album Versions Of Us which will be out on 2 June. This self-produced fifth studio album, on which Radiohead’s Philip Selway joined the band to provide drums and percussion, follows 2020’s Mercury-nominated Spook the Herd.
The nine-track album examines life’s possibilities, questioning whether we can change our individual and collective destinies. Reflecting on her own approach to ‘destiny’, Lanterns On The Lake’s singer and songwriter Hazel Wilde explained, “Writing songs requires a certain level of self-indulgence, and songwriters can be prone to dwelling on themselves,” she says. “Motherhood made me aware of having a different stake in the world. I’ve got to believe that there’s a better way and an alternative future to the one we’ve been hurtling towards. I’ve also got to believe that I could be better as a person, too.”
