The unstoppable rise of The Lathums escalates further with the announcement that the four-piece will play their biggest shows to date in April and May 2021, including a dream-come-true date at the historic O2 Ritz, Manchester and a return to the capital to play at London’s Electric Ballroom.

The emergence of the melodic indie band from Wigan with heart-quickening live intensity, near-spiritual positive energy and literary influences (Essential listening: Fight On – influenced by tales of the French Resistance) has thrilled those waiting patiently for new heroes of emotive guitar music that means everything. An 18-month journey from playing bars to selling out their first headline tour in just one day, signing to Island Records on the way, made for a breathless first chapter. With the plot warming up to the point of overheating, the next, exciting episode gets underway on even bigger stages.
Rushing into 2021 with a run of rescheduled support dates in the UK and Europe with Blossoms and domestic engagements with Paul Weller, the full list of dates for The Lathums Spring Tour 2020 are as follows:
The Lathums’ beg-for-a-ticket live shows have become legendary amongst those ‘in the know’ fans enjoying the ride as it has gathered pace. Delivering pure joy and tall tales, the four talented friends from the overlooked fringes of Greater Manchester netted streaming figures in their millions with a string of independent releases prior to signing their deal with Island. It’s a journey immortalised in their short film; The Memories We Make, with a compilation EP of the same name flying into the UK Album Charts at Number 14 in on release in July.
The band is made up of lead singer, Alex Moore, also playing rhythm guitar, Scott Concepcion, a Rickenbacker-toting multi-instrumentalist, Johnny Cunliffe on bass and Ryan Durrans behind the drums. Quoting influences such as The Housemartins and The Smiths, the band is spending Summer 2020 in the studio in Liverpool, recording their debut album in the company of producers, James Skelly (The Coral) and Chris Taylor.
