Their 10 date run kicks off at the prestigious 2000 Trees Festival in Cheltenham playing alongside Refused. This tour sees The Smith Street Band undertake their biggest and most extensive UK run so far, headlining London institution the Underworld and making the trip to Ireland for the very first time. Tickets are now on sale-www.thesmithstreetband.com.

July will be the band’s sixth trip to the UK, touring off the back of critically acclaimed 2014 LP ‘Throw Me In The River‘ & 2015 EP ‘I Scare Myself Sometimes‘, both released locally through independent stalwart Banquet Records. With sold out shows all over the world and hints of new music on the horizon The Smith Street Band are a band that need to be experienced up close and personal.
