Brooklyn band Friends, not to be confused with the over -caffeinated, fictional New Yorkers from that television show, or the Swedish band by the same name from 2001’s Eurovision song contest, are at about to take the UK by storm.

The band are already playing three sold out shows this week and have now released details of a full UK tour and a couple of slots at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival. The tour set for May will kick off in Leeds before heading to Newcastle and Glasgow and shows in Manchester and London will serve as a perfect warm up to the two night run in Brighton. The manic schedule then takes the group to Birmingham and Bristol. Watch the video to new single ‘Friend Crush’ and see the full list of dates below:
