Goldheart Assembly have announced details of short run of UK headline shows in July. The dates follow their second album, Long Distance Song Effects, which is released through New Music Club on Monday July 1st 2013.

Most recently, at the end of 2012, they completed a low-key residency at London's Sebright Arms and a European tour with Band of Horses.
The full list of current shows is as follows:
3rd Glasgow King Tuts
4th Manchester Soup Kitchen
9th London Borderline
11th Bristol Louisiana
Tickets for the shows are priced at £7 (£10 in London) and are available via
Self-produced by the band with Tobi Gmur and recoded in Lucerne, Switzerland and London, the 11-track album follows their acclaimed debut, Wolves and Thieves, which was released in March 2010.

Goldheart Assembly are: Jake Bowser (keyboards, vocals), James Dale (lead vocals, bass), Nicky Francis (drums, vocals), Kyle Hall (guitar) and John Herbert (lead vocals, guitar).
