Remaining tickets then go on general sale HERE from  10am on Friday, October 27th. Scouting For Girls still consists of its founder members Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Peter Ellard, who together have so far achieved four Top 10 singles, four Top 10 albums, 2 million sales, more than a billion streams, four BRIT Awards and an Ivor Novello. The band’s rich catalogue of hits includes ‘She’s So Lovely’, the #1 smash, ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’, ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’. Roy Stride says, “This has been my favourite year ever to be in Scouting for Girls, a sold out tour and our best album in a decade!   I’m delighted to announce these new dates in 2024 and visit some of the places we missed on this tour and hopefully stop people complaining that they can’t get tickets to see us lol!  The shows this year have been magic and I feel like we’re at the top of our game, and I’m excited to create a brand new show and setlist for the 2024 tour.

The album includes the recent singles ‘Glow’, ‘The Missing Part’ and the title track. Scouting For Girls celebrate the release of the album by playing a series of intimate acoustic record store shows in the coming week.
