English Teacher Announce Ambitious Winter UK Tour in Support of Debut Album

English Teacher

English Teacher are gearing up for a massive winter headline tour across the UK, kicking off in November.

The Leeds-based band, fresh off a successful summer festival season, announced the five-date run via social media, promising fans an ever-evolving live experience. Their message hints at a continually expanding stage presence, with a playful jab at the iconic Madison Square Garden.

The tour kicks off on November 12th with a headline performance at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. From there, the band will traverse Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, and Bristol before wrapping up the tour. Tickets go on general sale on April 12th, with a pre-sale available to fans who pre-order their debut album, “This Could Be Texas,” also dropping on April 12th.

This announcement comes on the heels of a busy period for English Teacher. They’re slated for a string of UK and Irish dates next month, followed by a North American tour in June. Festival appearances at Bearded Theory, Truck Festival, and Boardmasters further solidify their presence on the summer circuit.

This Could Be Texas,” the band’s highly anticipated debut album, is set for release on April 12th. In a recent interview, guitarist Lewis Whiting emphasized the album’s reflection of their current artistic direction and their refusal to be confined by a single sound. Whiting promises a diverse collection featuring “huge-sounding ballads” and a strong “point to prove.”

Drummer Douglas Frost echoed this sentiment, highlighting the band’s renewed confidence after their Glastonbury 2022 performance. Frost described the experience as a “fresh lease of life” and a pivotal moment in their return to the live stage.

With a critically acclaimed debut album on the horizon and an ambitious tour planned, English Teacher are poised to make a significant mark on the UK music scene.
