The Family Rain have announced a short headline run of the UK, their first for 2014. The 'Bad Weather' tour, will commence in Birmingham on June 6, and wrap up at Dingwalls in London on June 12.
The trio from Bath spent a large part of 2013 relentlessly on the road, knocking up over 200 shows and touring with Biffy Clyro, Jake Bugg, Miles Kane, The Courteeners, Deap Vally, and Darlia who supported the band on their last headline run in November.
Since their debut album release in February the band have been holed up in the studio with producer Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Band Of Skulls) working on new material and the band are itching to get back on the road.
singer/bassist Will Walter says: "We are itching to get out on this tour. It will be our first run of dates in a while. We have been working on new material in the studio and can't wait to add some to the set. We have a few new tricks and surprises to bang out. Let's hope the weather is good."
'Don't waste Your Time' is the latest single to be taken from the album. Due May 12thvia Virgin EMI, this is a desert blues with a hip hop backbeat sending all the needles into the red.
The band recently returned from Shanghai where they performed at Burberry's flagship store to launch the fashion brand's new fragrance, Brit Rhythm. Following the upcoming headline shows the band will go straight into a busy festival season. They are also the face of campaigns for Marshall Headphones and Dr Martens due to commence over summer.
