With their new album Spreading Rumours releasing in the UK early next year
Speaking about the forthcoming UK dates, the band commented - "We are excited to announce that we'll be back in London for our first international stop on the Seesaw Tour. This is not just a normal tour-- we're spending two nights in each city, playing small and unique venues-- one night heavy, and one night light. This is a chance to see and hang with us an intimate setting with a rock show the first night and a stripped down/acoustic show the second night."
Having performed at some of the UK's best loved festivals - including Glastonbury, T in the Park and Reading & Leeds - and selling out their last London show months in advance, the intimate shows mark the band's first return to the UK following the release of their debut albumNever Trust A Happy Song. The album, which has garnered rave reviews since its release, saw the band embark on a run of US festival performances at the likes of Coachella and Bonnaroo as well as sold out headline shows across the world.
With their second studio album Spreading Rumours (produced by the band's drummer Ryan Rabin) releasing in the US today throughCanvasback/Atlantic Records and with an early 2014 UK release, fans will pleased to see the band back with their trademark glistening, synth-led, dreamy anthems. Grouplove's latest single 'Ways To Go' charted at #4 on the US Alternative Songs chart upon its release last month and the official video has now had over 1.9 million views!
