The Mysterines announce their largest tour to date

Merseyside's own The Mysterines announce their most ambitious tour yet, alongside the release of their highly introspective new album, due this June.


After having been teased with new single ‘Stray’, fans of The Mysterines (such as us) are now being treated to a full, UK and Europe-wide tour this year, their most extensive headline tour to date.

The journey begins in Dublin on October 18, before an electrifying night at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, and wrapping up in Paris by November 8. Eager fans can jump on presale tickets come February 28 at 10 AM GMT, with general sales starting March 1 at the same time.

But that’s not all. The band also lifted the lid on their eagerly awaited second studio album, Afraid of Tomorrows, set for release on June 7 through Fiction Records. The announcement came alongside their latest single, ‘Stray’, which Clara Amfo from BBC Radio 1 was quick to dub as her Hottest Record. This track, accompanied by a video directed by Matilda Harding-Kemp, offers a first taste of what to expect from the upcoming album. Check it out below…

Produced by the Grammy Award-winning John Congleton in LA, Afraid of Tomorrows wades deeper into the band’s essence. Lia Metcalfe, the voice and vision behind The Mysterines, alongside George Favager on bass, Callum Thompson wielding the guitar, and Paul Crilly keeping the beat on drums, describe the album as a journey through the collective psyche – a blend of trauma, joy, mistakes, and the raw hunger for life.

‘Afraid of Tomorrows’ is available for pre-order now.
