After celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2019 with the release of the [email protected] album British rock icons Skunk Anansie have announced their return to the road with a major headline tour starting in June 2020.

Having spent most of the past year on the road, touring across the UK and Europe which saw them visit 13 countries, headline festivals and receive some of the best reviews of their career, the band are now back for more with shows up and down the country.

Ticket presale opens on Wednesday 5th February and tickets go on general sale this Friday 7th February.

The track garnered airplay on BBC Radio 2 and was an instant fan-favourite. The band release its riff-raging follow-up ‘This Means War’ on Friday, accompanied by a stunning video shot at their headline show in Poland last year in front of 800,000 people.

Both tracks will be made available as a limited run ‘collector’s edition’ double A-side vinyl 7” in April, with pre-orders available from Friday via
