Elbow announce new album, tour

By | Published on Monday 3 October 2016


Elbow will tour the UK and Ireland in February and March next year. Why are they touring? Well, they’re releasing a new album on 3 Feb, that’s why. Well, that’s if all goes to plan. The band are currently recording said album at Blueprint Studios in Salford.

Presumably they’re confident that they’re going to be finished in the next three or four months. Otherwise why would they announce the release date and the tour? I don’t know, maybe it’s going badly and they feel like they need a really solid deadline to work towards. Did you consider that? Maybe they haven’t written any songs yet. Maybe they don’t have any songs left in them. There’s not even a title for the album. Oh God, this could be a real disaster.

No, it’s probably fine. Definitely book tickets for these shows when they go on sale on Friday. Here are the dates:
