Peggy Sue have announced a UK tour.

The London-based duo, Katy Young and Rosa Slade, will follow up the release of their new album, 'Vices', on February 21 with shows in Cambridge, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow, Newcastle, Coventry, Sheffield and London betweey March 24 and April 9. Young said:

"Lots of songs on the record are sort of messed-up love songs for things that feel good, but aren't necessarily good for you – like getting staying out too late, or taking too much comfort from certain people.That kind of interplay between the positive and the negative has always been in Peggy Sue songs, but it's particularly true of this album. It's about the things you do to lift you up when you're down, or distract you when you're sad, that can end up circling back."

Head below to listen to the record's second single, Validate Me. Discussing the pop and garage punk-influenced track, Young continued:

“We were listening to a lot of Ramones, and female bands that borrow from them - like Colleen Green and Vivian Girls - and 'Validate Me takes inspiration from the way they can combine sweet and vulnerable and seething and heavy all in one track. This song owns up to a set of emotions that aren’t particularly empowering – to getting validation from someone else’s desire for you. But there’s something empowering about admitting to them. Lots of the songs on the new album Vices are sort of messed-up love songs for things that feel good, but aren't necessarily good for you – like getting staying out too late, or taking too much comfort from certain people." 

Peggy Sue will finish up 2019 with a London show on December 12. Details are below.
