The Happy Fits announce first UK headline tour

The run of dates will commence on 17th October at Glasgow’s Attic venu

Brooklyn alt-rock-pop trio The Happy Fits have announced a trip across the Atlantic for a UK/EU headline tour, which will take place later this year in October. Fans can get first access to tickets by signing up to The Happy Fits mailing list, here. Doing so will allow them to enter a pre-sale, launching tomorrow, Thursday 12th May at 10am BST. Tickets go on general sale this Friday, 13th May at 10am BST. Tickets will be available for purchase here.

The run of dates will commence on 17th October at Glasgow’s Attic venue, before the band head to Manchester for a show at NIght & Day on 18th October, followed by London’s Colours, Hoxton on 19th October. On the 22nd, The Happy Fits head to Berlin, Germany, to play Prachtwerk.

The announcement of the tour follows the release of the band’s vibrant new single ‘Dance Alone’, a track which arose from the many lonely nights spent in lockdown during the pandemic, which will now be translated into a greatly-missed party in October. The Happy Fits make uplifting indie-pop bangers with some of the catchiest hooks around, successfully combining sincere, thoughtful lyricism with a youthful sound fit for the indie disco, and one that translates into a lively live show.

What sets The Happy Fits apart sonically from other artists in the genre is their inclusion of the cello, which they often use instead of a bass. Band member Calvin Langman is dedicated in fitting classical cello into rock music. Witness this on The Happy Fits UK/EU tour.

Coming off the hugely successful first leg of their US tour, which sold out over 20 shows from LA to New York, The Happy Fits are currently moving through the second leg of the North American What Could Be Better Tour 2022 with support from Sarah & The Sundays, including a stop at Los Angeles’ iconic Troubadour, where they played their discography in full for a packed, zealous crowd. Plus, they’re wrapping up over 20 dates as support for The Maine on their Spring U.S. tour.

Live videos like “She Wants Me (To Be Loved)” Live in Los Angeles, prove the band’s palpable live energy and connection with their audiences is undeniable. This connection has brought The Happy Fits to over one million monthly listeners on Spotify, 85 million total streams, 7.5 million YouTube views, and 7k vinyl sales. Billboard named The Happy Fits as number 4 in their 12 Top New Artists for the Alternative category. Now, with over a million followers on TikTok and a steadily growing fanbase, 2022’s tour is set to not only invite new listeners into the fold, but also give the original fan family the quintessential Happy Fits feeling
