With their debut album Columbia having been released, The Blinders have announced they will be touring with a headline tour throughout October and November. The 22-date tour, The Blinders second headline tour of 2018, kicks off in their adopted hometown of Manchester at Academy 2 on October 15th and includes a show at London’s The Garage on November 7th. The fast-rising alt-rock trio, who’s current single L’Etat C’Est Moi has been playlisted at 6Music.

The Blinders are Thomas Haywood (guitar, vocals, word), Charlie McGough (bass guitar), and Matthew Neale (drums, backing vocals). Growing up in Doncaster, the trio met at school and were originally inspired by local heroes Arctic Monkeys, though for Columbia, which was produced by Gavin Monaghan at Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton, they draw on influences as diverse as The Smiths, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Kanye West.
