The Deep Blue have announced a UK headline tour culminating in a hometown gig at Manchester’s YES.

The Manchester gig is one of 12 UK dates they have announced.  They will also headline a Liverpool gig at Kazimier Stockroom.

The announcement comes ahead of a string of dates supporting Lottery Winners.

The Manchester band’s tour announcement comes after The Deep Blue shared their latest single Somebody’s Daughter, their response to the border crisis.  As they explained, “We feel alarmed by the current discourse around asylum seekers which is often dehumanising. With our song and music video, we have tried to combat the facelessness of the people attempting to seek refuge in the UK, when the government has not provided safe and legal routes for them. Rejecting the ‘us and them’ narrative and moving towards deeper empathy and compassion. The injustice of it is horrifying.

“This song is our personal response to try and navigate the polarising and inhuman media narrative around borders and asylum seekers. 40% of global refugees are children. That’s 43.3 million children. Watching someone’s childhood be ripped away and reduced to a statistic is hard to stomach. All these young children are somebody’s child.”

The Deep Blue released their debut EP in May 2021, quickly picking up a wave of support ahead of their second EP Sugarcoat, with the EP’s title track picking up national airplay.  They are currently working on their third EP which is expected to land in 2024.
