The Struts will be performing a series of headlining UK and European shows in August, alongside a clutch of festival dates.
The Derby quartet’s tour will start in the UK where the band will headline shows at Nottingham Rock City (August 10), Manchester O2 Ritz (August 11) and London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town (August 12) before they launch themselves at mainland Europe.
In a statement, frontman Luke Spiller said, “Finally we are returning to the UK and Europe! We can’t wait to play you some new material and a new show we’ve been putting together for the last year. Get your tickets as fast as you can! Love you all! X”
The Struts signed a new deal with Big Machine Records during 2022 and promise new music in the near future.
“I think it’s a great time to be in a band,” Spiller told Classic Rock in a recent interview. “People have been starved of live music, and for the first time in a long time there are guitar bands blowing up all over the world. Let’s be honest, the resurgence has mainly been an American pop-punk kind of thing, and that’s not really my bag, so I’m looking forward to pushing a more traditional British kind of sound to the Americans.”
The Struts’ most recent single, then anthemic “Fallin’ With Me,” was released in August 2022. It arrived with a Bryson Roatch-directed video which captured the band performing the track in a bright interior, bringing the infectious and playful energy of their live gigs to the clip.
