Circa Waves have announced a new album and spring UK tour.

The follow-up to 2018's 'What's It Like Over There?' is called 'Sad Happy' and is made up of two sides, 'Sad' and 'Happy', with the latter being available via streaming services on January 10, with a full release set to follow on March 13. Vocalist and guitarist Kieran Shudall said:

"We live in a world split into two extreme halves. One moment, you’re filled with the existential crisis of climate doom, and the next, you’re distracted by another piece of inconsequential content that has you laughing aloud. I find this close proximity of immense sadness and happiness so jarring, bizarre and fascinating. Our brains rattle back and forth through emotions at such a rate that happiness and sadness no longer feel mutually exclusive. This idea was the blueprint for  Sad Happy and is the theme that underpins the album. Sad / Happy is written in my Liverpool home. It’s also hugely inspired by my surroundings and the love I have for the city. It runs through thoughts on mortality, love and observations of people."

The band will support the album with spring shows in Glasgow, Stoke, Cardiff, Leicester, Norwich, Liverpool and London, where they'll play the O2 Academy Brixton on April 3. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on November 29.
