Wolf Alice have announced a tour of UK and Ireland in support of their third studio album Blue Weekend, with dates revealed for January 2022. 

The Mercury Prize award winners (for 2017's Visions Of A Life) will play their first shows since 2018, including dates at Glasgow's Barrowlands, Birmingham's O2 Academy, and London's Eventim Apollo. 

As they announced the long-awaited tour, lead singer Ellie Rowsell posted on the band's social channels: "We've finally got a tour to announce and it feels soo gooood (promoters get the hummous ready) we are coming home." She goes on to say: "most importantly i can not wait to see you all again old fans and new even the friend you've dragged along who doesn't even want to be there i can't wait to see you too. i can't wait to play these new songs live they are gonna sound so gooooood."

Recently appearing on Later... With Jools Holland with a rousing performance of recent single 'Last Man On Earth', it offered a snippet of their refined sound which shifts their focus to candid storytelling more so than the anthemic indie aesthetic that's defined them to date. 

Pre-sale begins at 09:00 GMT on 24th March, before tickets go on general sale on 26th March here. Check out the full tour dates below:

Blue Weekend is out via Dirty Hit on 11th June.
