Glass Animals announce world tour, including enormous London Roundhouse show

07 June 2016, 09:38 | Written by Laurence Day

It's a big day for Glass Animals: they've announced a huge world tour, detailed their new LP How To Be A Human Being, and revealed a video for "Life Itself".

The Roundhouse show is the group's biggest UK headline show to date, unsurprisingly. Find the full tour dates and ticket info.

Speaking to Best Fit about their upcoming shows, Glass Animals frontman Dave Bayley told us:

"We're working out how to play the new stuff now... it's complicated, but it's gonna be fun! It's going to be very different for London and Europe where we haven't actually toured in a long time. We've played something like 200 shows since the last time we played England... maybe it's closer to 100, but it's still something ridiculous. The live show has changed so much. It'll be awesome to bring it all home."

As well as the headline dates, Glass Animals have also confirmed their appearance at this year's Bestival.

How To Be A Human Being is out 26 August via Caroline/Wolf Tone. It follows ZABA, and if you pre-order it you'll get the chance to nab tickets for their tour early.
