The Big Moon have today announced the release of new single ‘Barcelona’, taken from their new album ‘Walking Like We Do’, out now on Fiction Records. They’re also thrilled to announce details of a headline tour of the UK for the Autumn.
Vocalist Juliette Jackson on Barcelona:
“There’s a moment in your late twenties where suddenly everything changes, and this last couple of years I’ve really hit that moment – my friends are moving on, moving away, starting to have babies and buy houses and go on to big new adventures. In a band you can kind of get a bit stuck… you go away on tour for long periods, and each time you come home you find things have changed again. You start to feel left behind. You become an overgrown teenager. You’re simultaneously happy for them but also a bit sad that they left you behind – it’s bittersweet.”
The band, currently out on a full tour of the UK and Ireland in support of Bombay Bicycle Club, and have already sold-out a short tour for the Spring, will head back out across the UK in October for eight dates, concluding with their biggest headline show to date at The Forum in London on the 30th October.
Tickets for all new shows will be on sale from next Friday (14th February), with tickets available on pre-sale from 10am on Weds 12th February to those on the band’s mailing list.
To coincide with the announcement of the new tour, The Big Moon are pleased to share a brilliantly personal and funny behind-the-scenes documentary, shot by the band during their time at Maze Studios in Atlanta recording in 2019 and edited by the band’s own Fern Ford.
