elbow have announced their most extensive tour since 2008, which includes a return to Newport Centre for one night only on March 10, 2017.
The only Welsh date of their tour for their forthcoming, as yet, untitled new album, sees the band return to towns last visited around the release of their 2008 album, The Seldom Seen Kid. The final tour of previous album The Take Off and Landing of Everything in 2015 saw the band play their longest ever theatre residences in London and Manchester. The decision to repeat this and then visit as many places as possible came from the feedback of fans who loved those shows as much as the band did.
elbow are currently in Blueprint Studios, Salford recording their seventh studio album, set for release on February 3, 2017.
The album follows a year that saw various band members undertake work outside the band. Whilst Craig Potter produced the critically acclaimed Meet the Humans for Steve Mason and Guy Garvey released his debut solo album, Courting the Squall, guitarist Mark Potter formed blues, folk and roots band The Plumedores.
