We Were Promised Jetpacks 
announce signing to Big Scary Monsters and extensive autumn / winter tour throughout UK / Europe / USA
Scottish rock mainstays We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced their signing to revered boutique record label Big Scary Monsters, alongside an enormous tour in the UK, Europe and US throughout September, October and November (full list of dates below). Tickets go on sale on Friday 13th July via https://www.wewerepromisedjetpacks.com/.

First emerging a group of 20-year-olds in 2009, with their exciting debut These Four Walls, the four members went on to release two further widely lauded albums throughout their ‘20s, 2011’s In the Pit of the Stomach and 2014’s Unravelling. Each band member recently turned 30 and felt like vastly different people to the four 20-year-olds that they were when they first started releasing music.

Having spent ten years almost consistently writing and touring, it was time to decamp home to Scotland and take a breath. They reverted back to their original four members and dealt with several behind the scenes changes. They celebrated a few marriages and tried to remember who they were when not on the road. Now the acclaimed group have returned with a teaser video, freshly signed to Big Scary Monsters and ready to embark on their first huge headline tour in a number of years.
