15 October Bristol, Anson Rooms
17 October London, Shepherd's Bush Empire
Support on all dates comes from THUMPERS.

THE BONES OF WHAT YOU BELIEVE will be released in the UK on 23 September via Virgin Records / Goodbye Records. It is available for pre-order now.
The album will feature new single GUN, released today in a digital bundle and on 12-inch heavyweight pink vinyl, backed with a full suite of remixes spread across the formats by Groundislava, DJ Helix, Auntie Flo, Jamie Isaac and KDA. The single comes hot on the heels of the RECOVER EP, the band's first release on their own Goodbye Records imprint of Virgin Records.
In little more than twelve months CHVRCHES have come out of nowhere to be everywhere. There's a lot to catch up on since they posted their first song, LIES, online last May - a place in the top five of the BBC Sound of 2013, sell out headline tours in the UK and US (the most recent US tour playing to almost 20,000 people over 18 shows), a triumphant, award-winning appearance at SXSW and a string of stadium dates with Depeche Mode, to name but a few.
