Glass Animals / October 2016 UK/Irish Tour

By on Thursday, 9th June 2016 at 8:00 am

Oxford’s Glass Animals have announced a tour of the UK and Ireland for this autumn, following the highly anticipated release of their second album ‘How To Be a Human Being’, due out on the 26th of August via Caroline International / Wolftone. The tour will begin with a hometown show in Oxford on the 21st of October and wrap up on the 29th of October in Dublin.  Additionally, Glass Animals are scheduled to play an exclusive show at the ICA in London on the 15th of June, as well as festival slots at Wilderness Festival, Electric Picnic and Bestival.

The band have also revealed a vaguely sinister and nefarious new video for album track ‘Life Itself’, which you can view just below the tour date listing. Our own editor Mary has already reviewed the single, but Glass Animals’ lead singer Dave Bayley elaborates on his inspiration in the video’s press release: “I try to sneakily record people, and I have hours and hours of these amazing rants from taxi drivers, strange people we met outside of shows, people at parties. People say the strangest shit when they don’t think they’re ever gonna see you again.” It’s hard to imagine what might have prompted the storyline for this song or its video, but perhaps it will look familiar to someone among Glass Animals’ growing legion of fans.

Tickets for the following live dates will be available starting today, Thursday the 9th of June, at 9 AM. A full listing of Glass Animals’ upcoming worldwide tour dates can be found here. TGTF’s previous coverage of Glass Animals is back this way.
