The Lathums are set for a huge homecoming show at O2 Victoria Warehouse, Manchester as they announce new and re-scheduled live dates.

Multiple autumn tour dates have been upgraded due to demand, with the poetic four-piece set to debut at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom and London’s O2 Forum

The BBC Sound Poll-tipped four-piece’s last headline tour in February 2020, selling out in just sixty0 seconds, saw them play the same cities in 300-person capacity venues including King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Night and Day Café and Omeara. Having also torn through fastest sell out records at both Leicester’s O2 Academy 2 and Stoke’s Sugarmill, demand to join The Lathums’ generation-defining live experience grows at a pace equal to the band’s song writing stature.

With stepping-stone singles, All My Life and I See Your Ghost, seeing the Wigan band safely across the torrents of live music’s lost year, The Lathums also dug out positives during the trauma of Covid in their UK album chart debut with their vinyl-only EP compilation, The Memories We Make. The dreams kept coming true as they invaded the nation’s front rooms as guests on Later… With Jools Holland as well as breaking into BBC Radio One’s Introducing Playlist.

2021, all being well, appears to present open goals for the band made up of old soul, literary front man, Alex Moore, vintage guitar-obsessed, multi-instrumentalist Scott Concepcion, wild man Johnny Cunliffe on bass and the chill metronome, Ryan Durrans behind the drums. Quoting influences as head-scratchingly disparate as The Housemartins, The Ramones and Patsy Cline, the band is rumoured to have completed their debut album in the company of producers, James Skelly (The Coral) and Chris Taylor at Parr Street Studios, Liverpool.

In addition to their own headline tour, The Lathums are also looking forward to re-scheduled support dates in the UK and Europe with Blossoms and domestic engagements with Paul Weller.
