The Lathums have announced details of their biggest UK tour to date, and confirmed that it will be as a three-piece.

Fans have recently been filling the Wigan band’s comment section on social media asking where bassist Johnny Cunliffe has been.

In a post on Instagram, The Lathums confirmed that Johnny left the band earlier this year and thanked fans for their support.

The remaining trio – frontman Alex Moore, Scott Concepcion on guitars and piano, and drummer Ryan Durrans – are now preparing for a huge UK tour.

The first single from the album is out now, titled Say My Name. The album is due for release on Friday 24 February 2023.

Their debut How Beautiful Life Can Be reached the top of the UK albums chart and The Lathums have gone on to perform at some of the world’s biggest festivals.

They say their new music will be ‘an act of rebellion having seen the rules of the game’ and encompass more of the ‘sad and strange’.

Reflecting on the track, Moore says: “Say My Name is a more recent song and, like everything we seem to do, has profound personal meanings. It’s a conversation with someone who has gone, with them speaking to the person who is alive, saying the things that they want to hear.”

Tickets for The Lathums’ 11-date spring 2023 tour will go on general sale at 9am on Thursday 3 November, with exclusive fan pre-sales available through thelathums.com.
