Frontier Members and Artist Fan Club gain access to the exclusive pre-sale on Monday 3 April (12pm local time), before tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday 4 April (1pm local time) via frontiertouring.com/thesnuts.
Jack Cochrane (vocals and guitar), Joe McGillveray (guitar), Callum '29' Wilson (bass) and Jordan 'Joko' Mackay (drums) formed the band when in school and draw influences from the likes of the Libertines and Arctic Monkeys.
The Snuts debut album W.L. stormed the charts in 2021, making them the first Scottish band in 14 years to release a debut #1 album. They released their sophomore album Burn The Empire to rave reviews in September 2022. Produced by collaborators Detonate and Clarence Coffee Jr [Dua Lipa, Years & Years], the album – which claimed another Top 3 for the band – continues their evolution both sonically and lyrically, with NME describing it as ‘A fearless evolution’.
Infectious, euphoric, heartfelt and packed to the brim with hooks, Burn The Empire is the work of a band living in the moment, with an eye to the future. On title track ‘Burn The Empire’ and second single ‘Zuckerpunch’, lead singer Jack Cochrane attacks subjects affecting the youth of today, addressing corrupt corporations and politicians, as well as the lethal effects of poverty across Britain and its impact on society.
Armed with a chart-topping album and an arsenal of adoring fans, these four lads are well on their way to being one of the most vital bands of recent years.
