Sunflower Bean have announced a return to the UK for a 12-date run including a Manchester gig at Manchester Academy 2 in November. The new run of dates mark a return to the city where Sunflower Bean performed at Gorilla in March.
The New York trio recently completed a rapturously received month long UK and European tour marking the release of their recent album Twentytwo in Blue. Twentytwo in Blue was released on 23 March when all members of the band were 22 years old and follow on from their acclaimed 2016 debut album Human Ceremony.
Co-produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jacob Portrait (who also mixed the record) and HC-producer Matt Molnar of Friends, Twentytwo in Blue shows Sunflower Bean stay true to their guitar band core and classic rock-inspired roots, while exploring new sonic textures with more direct and progressive themes.
