Sleep Token have announced their biggest ever UK tour to date, which will take in shows at arenas across the country.

After playing Wembley Arena late last year, the anonymous rockers will return in November to play five of the UK’s biggest rooms, including shows at The O2 Arena in London and Manchester’s Co-Op Live, which will become the largest arena in the country when it opens later this year.

The group also recently announced a huge US tour supported by Empire State Bastard. The demand for that tour proved so great that the band were forced to cancel a huge swathe of tickets that had been snapped up by bots and ticket scalpers alike.

The group’s latest album came in 2023 with Take Me Back To Eden, hailed by Rolling Stone UK for allowing them to “upend the established metal order”.

“As they’ve solidified their influence over the alternative metal scene, the question of who Sleep Token are has given away to the more pertinent discussion of whether or not it really matters,” we wrote at the time.

“The anonymous masked collective have carved out a dedicated cult fanbase with their singular sound, which takes modern pop sensibilities and imbues them with punishing loudness, like if James Blake had grown up reading Kerrang! or if Chino Moreno was ever allowed to get away with letting his indie rock proclivities define DeftonesTake Me Back to Eden offers up more punishing anthems, as the group, led by a frontman known only as Vessel, continue to upend the established metal order.”

Tickets for the UK tour are on sale from February 9 at 10am UK time and you can buy them here. The tour dates are below in full.
