Estrons have announced a headline UK tour for later in the year.

Following dates in Europe, they will head to Leeds, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Bristol, Nottingham, Exeter, Birmingham, Brighton, Caernarfon, Carmarthen and Cardiff between November 1 and December 6. Tickets are on sale now.

Alongside the show announcements, the Cardiff-based band have also shared a new single. Speaking about Lilac, which was premiered by Huw Stephens on his BBC Radio 1 show last night, vocalist Tali Källström said:

"[The song is about] an encounter I had with a teenage girl in the early hours of the morning. I drove past her crying in the street with her shoes in her hand and so I decided to turn the car around to check on her. I'd assumed that she was crying about something superficial and I'd also assumed that the man walking a few feet behind her was trying to take advantage. Turns out the man actually lived on that street and the girl was heartbroken because her dad had just been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

"We often get things wrong because society leads us to create prejudices on genders; the song is myself reflecting on that. It also celebrates human empathy as the girl I helped was genuinely touched that I'd stopped to check she got home okay. I haven't seen her since that day - but this one goes out to her, anybody who is going through a difficult time and also to all the people out there who have helped me in a crisis. Someone always cares and you can get through it."

The Cardiff-based have a busy summer ahead with numerous festival appearances in the diary. They have also been handpicked by Garbage to support them at their shows in Manchester, Nottingham and Newcastle in September.

Prior to all of this, tonight Estrons will play a free show at the House Of Vans in London. Head here for further details.
