Fresh from the success of their Fieldworks alternative socially distanced tour, Squid have announced a tour of the UK to celebrate the release earlier this year of their debut album, Bright Green Field out on Warp Records.

The Fieldworks tour was an opportunity for their fans to experience something different in a number of beautiful and unusual settings and now with this headline tour, the fans will be able to hear Bright Green Field live for the first time.

The new album features field recordings of ringing church bells, tooting bees, microphones swinging from the ceiling orbiting a room of guitar amps, a distorted choir of thirty voices, as well as a horn and string ensemble featuring the likes of Emma-Jean Thackray and Lewis Evans from Black Country, New Road. However, for all the innovative recording techniques, evolutionary leaps, lyrical themes, ideas and narratives that underpin the album, it’s also a joyous and emphatic record. One that marries the uncertainties of the world with a curious sense of exploration as it endlessly twists and turns down unpredictable avenues.

Squid are guitarist Louis Borlase, drummer and lead vocalist Ollie Judge, Arthur Leadbetter on drums, bassist Laurie Nankivell and guitarist Anton Pearson.
