If you were sweating like an arrested FIFA member at the front of the last run of Sleaford Mods live shows, you will know where this duo are at right now. With packed venues admiring their hard graft around the country on this current tour, and a sold out Koko to play this week, the band have announced new live shows today that will run through September and October, their biggest UK tour to date.

“This is our first ‘posh’ tour; big bus, everything,” states frontman Jason Williamson. “It’s a big deal. Sleaford Mods at Rock City, The Forum, Manchester Ritz etc. Who would of thought it? Not fucking me.”

By that time, their new album ‘Key Markets’ would have been released on abstract-punk label Harbinger Sound (July 10th), they would have played with The Who and at Glastonbury, End of the Road and Isle of Wight Festivals – and maybe even bought their own kettle.

The band celebrate this news today by giving away a free track ‘Face To Faces’, taken from their 3rd proper album, available now for free when you pre-order ‘Key Markets’ online:
