As the rays of light at the end of the post-lockdown tunnel grow better and threaten to match the summer heatwave we’re currently enjoying, a whole raft of new tours have been announced.

Punk veterans The Professionals are the first to step up to the plate, with five dates – their first in three years – under banner of the ‘Pretty Vaccinated Tour’ at the end of August:

Indie popsters Kiwi Jr then plan to pop across the pond and join us for a handful of shows in February:

  • Friday 11 – London, Dalston Victoria
  • Sunday 13 – Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
  • Monday 14 – Manchester, Night & Day
  • Tuesday 15 – Bristol, Louisiana

They will be hotly followed by the return of Japanese metalcore noisemakers Crystal Lake, who will play six dates as part of an extensive European run of shows:
