Texas trio Khruangbin have announced a run of European tour dates for next year, including three shows across the UK.

The band will play across France, Germany, Switzlerland, Scandinavia and The Netherlands next April, before concluding the dates with shows in London, Glasgow and Manchester.

The UK dates are below, with tickets on sale here from this Friday.

14 – Alexandra Palace, London
15 – O2 Academy, Glasgow
16 – O2 Apollo, Manchester

The shows will be in support of the band’s 2020 album ‘Mordechai’, with their tour repeatedly delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We carefully planned our entire world tour around Glastonbury,” the band’s Laura Lee Ochoa said in an interview with NME last year, discussing their original plans. “We specifically arranged it so we could play on the Friday and still get our full weekend at Glastonbury.”

The band followed ‘Mordechai’ with a remix album last August, which featured reworks from the likes of Knxwledge, Kadhja Bonet, Quantic and Natasha Diggs.

Interviewed by Bonet about the record for Interview Magazine in August, Ochoa said that remixes are “like giving five chefs the same ingredients and seeing how each one plays with them. I think that it’s a really beautiful process.

“We decided we were going to make the remix record before the pandemic, but it ended up being the perfect project for this time, because it was something that everybody could work on in isolation. I really love collaborations. I’m in a band, which is a collaboration in itself, but I love what happens when you blend different minds.”
