Manchester four-piece The Slow Readers have announced an extensive UK tour for 2019, which will follow their sold-out headline dates in Glasgow, London, and Manchester next month. The tour will see the band play 32 intimate shows across the country throughout March and April. Regarding the tour, next year frontman Aaron Starkie says, “This is the first opportunity weíve had to do a full on UK tour, up until this point weíve all had day jobs to work around, but 2019 is the year we go at it properly, no more messing about. Weíve had tons of people ask us to play all over the UK so here we go.î

The bandís forthcoming sold-out run of dates next month will see them playing the biggest shows of their career so far.

The latest single, “On The TV”, taken from the album has proved a hit at radio, receiving great support from BBC 6Music and Radio X.
