Baby Strange Announce UK Tour in May

Baby Strange have announced a clutch of headline dates across the UK in May. See below for details. Vocalist and guitarist Johnny Madden says “We can not wait to get back out on the road to play some of our favourite cities. We’ll be playing some new songs that we’re buzzing for people to hear. There will be some very exciting supports on the bill too, it’s going to be a fun tour.” The live shows come ahead of the band’s second album which is due to land summer 2022 via Icons Creating Evil Art. More news soon. 

A first official taster of new music from the Glasgow indie punk trio was released a couple weeks back in the form of the hypnotic ‘Under The Surface’, the lyric video for which has just been revealed. It followed on from the surprise drop of ‘Midnight’ at the strike of midnight on New Years Eve. 

‘Under The Surface’ sets the tone for this new era for Baby Strange. Mesmerising in its emphatic delivery with an impeccable blend of anthemic melody, melancholic riffs and a huge chorus, the track will no doubt spark some riotous sing alongs on the band’s forthcoming tour dates. Speaking about the new single, vocalist and guitarist Johnny Madden notes: “Under The Surface is a song about feeling trapped and wanting to find a way out of whatever is holding you back. It’s about paranoia, dark thoughts and the need to get over them. It’s a powerful song for me, writing it was a total release and when we finished it in the studio I felt a weight was lifted from my shoulders”

There is an underlying rawness to the energy sewn deep into the fabric of Glasgow that Baby Strange have harnessed with an unrelenting force. 2021’s ‘Land of Nothing’ EP showed versatility in their songwriting and saw the band flowing between straight up punk rock anthems like ‘More! More! More!’ into the bass driven post-punk dynamics of ‘There’s Something There’. It propelled Baby Strange to a mammoth headline tour of the UK towards the end of the year which saw them packing out venues up and down the country. 

Last year saw a taste of the new era of Baby Strange and this year they’re set to show the world exactly what they’ve got.
