In the run up to their first Glastonbury appearance, Stone have shared new single I Gotta Feeling and confirmed a Manchester gig for October.

The Liverpool band have announced five headline UK dates including a gig at Manchester Academy 2.  They will also perform headline shows in Newcastle, Leeds, Glasgow and London.

In addition to the tour Stone will appear at a string of festivals across the UK including Glastonbury, Standon Calling, Tramlines, Kendal Calling and Truck Fest.

New track I Gotta Feeling was premiered as Clara Amfo’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1, and follows previous singles Left Right Forward and I Let Go.  Having recently showcased to a packed-out crowd at The Great Escape and sold-out a run of UK headline shows, I Gotta Feeling continues Stone’s momentum.

Speaking about the track’s reflection on ego and toxic bravado, Stone’s Fin Power explained, “I Gotta Feeling’ was written about when me and Alex went out on the night of the Grand National and how hostile the environment in the bars was – from people dressing like wannabee gangsters and also being upset they have lost money on the races. I walked around town with my notes app open and wrote lyrics whilst it was happening. The song also portrays how I used to relate to the ego these people have – but how liberating it is that I have escaped that toxic mentality. I feel like the song helps to show self-insight, and that lot of people will relate to it.”
