The Snuts have announced details of three headline gigs set for April 2022.

The Scottish indie band tweeted the announcement, calling the dates “some of our biggest shows to date”, writing: “No fkin way man”.

The run of dates finish up on April 30 at the legendary Brixton Academy in London, marking the band’s biggest headline show of their career to date.

Tickets for the shows will go on general sale at 9am this Friday (December 10), and fans can access an O2 Priority pre-sale tomorrow (December 8).

28 – Newcastle, Northumbria Uni SU
30 – London, O2 Academy Brixton

The Snuts recently released their latest single, ‘Burn The Empire’, marking their first release since their debut album, ‘W.L.’, which came out in April this year. Their album beat Demi Lovato’s ‘Dancing With The Devil… The Art Of Starting Over’ to the number one spot on the UK album charts earlier this year.

‘Burn The Empire’ features furious criticism of social inequality. Frontman Jack Cochrane explained: “I wanted the word ‘empire’ to feel open, almost rhetorical to what constitutes or qualifies as an oppressive factor in your life, because it certainly exists for 99% of people.

“We were driven to standup against the negative effects of big corporations on the everyday person. We all understand that these companies act ruthlessly and unethically in the name of profit.”

Cochrane added: “I think young people have always wanted a fairer and more equal society and it’s the voices of the old, the discontent and the ignorant that try and squash that. We believe in 2022 there is no place for fascism or oppression of any kind and we must burn the empire that represents it.”

Last month (November 7), the band were forced to pause their show in Oxford due to inappropriate behaviour from male concertgoers. The Snuts wrote, on Twitter: “Apologies to everyone for stopping tonight’s show. We are absolutely furious to learn about the behaviour of male fans at our show in Oxford.

“This is a male problem and it is only the responsibility of males to stamp it out. No one should ever feel unsafe at our gigs and it’s your responsibility to report and call out your friends if they are acting like fucking animals.”

They concluded: “We are not your fucking lad band and you don’t get [to] act like that at our shows.”
