Hot on the heels of the release of their acclaimed debut album ‘Weird Little Birthday’, South London slacker trio Happyness are plotting a course across the country in October. Having spent May on the road with Ezra Furman, appeared at Liverpool Sound City and Live At Leeds, and performing at Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Green Man among other summer Festivals, the band are set for what is sure to be their busiest tour yet.

Taking in a show at London’s Elektrowerkz on October 14th, the band will be translating their trademark brand of bracing, but literate, fuzzy alt rock to live audiences in the UK, before taking their first steps in the USA at this year’s CMJ. October headline dates are as follows:

8    The Rocking Chair, Sheffield – 18+ show [buy tickets]
10  The Parish, Huddersfield – 18+ show [buy tickets]
11  Twisterella Festival, Middlesbrough – 18+ show [buy tickets]
12  The Fulford Arms, York – 16+ show [buy tickets]
14  Electrowerkz, London – 16+ show [buy tickets]
15  Hare & Hounds, Birmingham – 18+ show [buy tickets]
16  The Old Bookshop, Bristol – 14+ show [buy tickets]
17  The Cookie, Leicester – 14+ show [buy tickets]

New music also comes very soon from the Happyness stable, in the shape of new single Anything I Do Is All Right. An album highlight for many, it’s one of the record’s brisker cuts, highlighting the band at their winsomely noisy best. The band comment: “One night in Bermondsey, we wanted to make a louder one.  It’s kind of about getting your personality off the internet or the television or pornography or whatever you’re hooked on. We’re going on tour again, it will be nice to get as close as possible to as many people as possible.”

The debut album Weird Little Birthday is out now on Weird Smiling
