elbow announce UK and Ireland Tour and new album

Posted by Gig Junkies on Saturday Oct 1, 2016 Under Music News, Tour Announcements

elbow announce their most extensive tour since 2008 with multi-night residencies in Dublin, Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester alongside returns to towns last visited around the release of ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’.  The final tour of previous album ‘ The Take Off and Landing of Everything’ in 2015 saw the band play their longest ever theatre residences in London and Manchester. The decision to repeat this and then visit as many places as possible came from the feedback of fans who loved those shows as much as the band did.


elbow are currently in Blueprint Studios, Salford recording their seventh studio album following a year that saw various members undertake work outside the band. Whilst Craig Potter produced the critically acclaimed ‘Meet The Humans’ for Steve Mason and Guy released his debut solo album, ‘Courting the Squall’, guitarist Mark Potter formed blues, folk and roots band The Plumedores. The new, as yet untitled album, will be released on February 3rd, 2017.  Further details on elbow’s seventh studio album will be announced shortly.
