The tour coincides with their forthcoming third studio album. ‘Guy Walks Into A Bar…’ which will be released on July 26th via Fiction Records. The band have also unleashed new single ‘GummyBear’.

‘Guy Walks Into A Bar…’ as an album examines the kind of hip-swaying rock’n’roll you’d find on a dive bar jukebox, it sounds happily disaffected by trend, time or place, like the titular joke itself. There are a hundred different kickers to that joke, but this time around the joke’s on them. A guy walks into a bar only to face reality. “It started off as a joke because it is a joke,” says Shuman of the title. “It’s a way to start off the story of a relationship that ends up getting much deeper.”

While all three of Mini Mansions are occupied with other gigs (notably Dawes plays in The Last Shadow Puppets, Parkford in Arctic Monkeys and Shuman still plays bass in Queens of The Stone Age), Mini Mansions is where they feel most at home.
