The Last Dinner Party has announced its first-ever North American tour.

The band will then head west and play a show at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The band will conclude the run on November 9 at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago.
The band shared the news on Instagram, writing, “Dearest friends across the Pond, we are finally coming for you this Autumn!

Back in June, the band shared its second single, “Sinner.” Produced by frequent Arctic Monkeys collaborator James Ford, “Sinner” builds on the atmosphere the group introduced listeners to with their debut single, “Nothing Matters.” With punctuated vocals and dramatic hooks, the band has already established a clear identity.
Guitarist Lizzie Mayland reflected on “Sinner,” explaining: “‘Sinner’ is a story of self-acceptance, and the longing for the past and present self to become one. Born from a breakbeat drum sample, ‘Sinner’ is punctuated by ripping guitar lines and harmony-filled vocal breakdowns.” The single arrived accompanied by a live video, which shows the group performing the song in a spotlit empty banquet hall, dressed to the nines with a historic flair.
Since their first single release, the band has spent much of its time on the road, where it’ll continue to be for the rest of the year. Beyond a massive Glastonbur sety, the group has performed opening slots for Florence and the Machine, and wrapped its festival run with sets at Green Man, End of the Road, Latitude, and Reading & Leeds.
