Dry Cleaning have announced their first UK and Ireland headline tour set to commence in February 2022, in support of their highly-anticipated debut album New Long Leg out on 2nd April via 4AD

The tour includes dates at Leeds' Brudenell Social Club, Sheffield's Leadmill, Portsmouth's Wedgewood Rooms, Brighton's Concorde 2, concluding with their biggest show to date at London's O2 Kentish Town Forum.

South London's sardonic upstarts are one of the more unusual bands to create a buzz throughout the past year, but their restless instrumentals combined with singer Florence Shaw's uniquely droll spoken-word delivery is hilariously and undeniably brilliant.

Take a look at their recent performance on Later... with Jools Holland filmed at London's MOTH Club:
