Manchester’s Rixton have announced that they will be joining US superstar Ariana Grande on her tour at Manchester Arena, promoting their debut album Let The Road.  The gig with Ariana Grande is scheduled for 4 June.

Rixton have spent most of the year to date on tour in America with Ariana Grande where their debut album, Let The Road was released last month to rave reviews and instantly became a Top 40 Billboard smash. That album is released in the UK on 8 June and features songs co-written by the band and their producer Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Maroon 5), as well as one song written by Ed Sheeran, with whom the band will be heading out on a 16-date North American tour in June.

“Let The Road is something we’re incredibly proud of,” says lead singer Jake Roche. “Songs have survived 6 years to make it on this album, back when me and Danny were writing in the caravan having no idea where they would end up. We feel incredibly humbled to be able to share this with our fans, and we hope you enjoy listening to it, just as much as we enjoyed making it.”
