Boston Manor Announces Rescheduled UK Headlining Tour Dates

Boston Manor have announced they are rescheduling the dates of their UK tour until early 2022.

Movements and Jools as support.

You can read a full statement from the band, explaining their reasoning for the decision:

“We have come to the difficult decision to reschedule our UK tour until Feb 2022. These are the new dates and we are excited to add Movements & Jools.

All tickets remain valid for these new dates.

Tours take a lot of work and time to rescheduled and we have been working on this since the emergence of the Delta Variant. We didn’t want to run the risk of cancelling the tour late on you guys yet again so 2022 feels like we will all be fully out of the woods and our fans can see us in the safest way for the rowdiest shows possible.

We were not willing to let COVID destroy a second year for our band entirely, we’ve been busy in the studio and will have new music for you soon as well as soon announcing a USA tour for later this year as America has been in a much more open state for the last couple of months.

Again, that took months to put together.

We have also started a new Twitch channel recently so join us over there if you can at

Thanks for understanding, we realise it’s not ideal but we are doing the best we can in what are uncertain times.”

Here are the dates:

11 – MANCHESTER Academy 2

While She Sleeps, Loathe and More Join Bloodstock 2021

2021’s Bloodstock is very much go with COVID-19 restrictions being lifted on July 19 – though the festival have had to make a few more last-minute changes to the line-up.

With Dark Tranquillity having to cancel their performance due to ​“international issues”, Loathe have been announced to take their place on the Ronnie James Dio main stage. 

​Erik Bickerstaffe says: “We are thrilled to be performing at this year’s Bloodstock Festival for the first time, and to be sharing the main stage on August 13 alongside an incredible and eclectic line-up of heavy artists,”

Elsewhere, after the news that Bury Tomorrow haee parted ways with guitarist / vocalist Jason Cameron, UK Metalcore crew have dropped off the line-up and will be replaced by  While She Sleeps.

“Due to the band’s current line-up situation and despite best efforts we are unfortunately unable to play Bloodstock this year, we are truly gutted!” say Bury Tomorrow. ​“We support the festival and hope everyone enjoys every minute of the weekend!

“We are however over the moon to confirm Bloodstock have invited us back next year so we will see you all at Bloodstock 2022!”

On top of that, Black Spiders have taken the spot of Unleash The Archers, and Lotus Eater will no longer play (having just split up themselves) and have been replaced by Foetal Juice.

Could You Open For As December Falls On The Upcoming UK Tour? Here’s How!

As December Falls have a UK tour coming up this year in support of their soon to be released record, ‘Happier’.

But there’s something else. You could open for them.

The band have launched a contest to find bands to open for them in every city they’re going to play in.

There’s 13 dates on the tour so there’s 13 bands that have the chance to open up for them.

The band explain:

“The last 15 months have been really tough for everyone in the live industry and most musicians have had to put their careers on hold all together. We’ve done our best to adapt to the challenges of covid and lockdown and we can’t thank our fans enough for helping us get through it – it’s been tough!

It got us thinking about all the fledgling acts that have been sitting at home, writing tons of new music, bummed out about not being able to rehearse, record or play live as regularly as we did when we first started out.

So when it came to putting our headline tour together, we knew we wanted to try and find the best new bands in each city to join us for a long overdue live show in their hometown.”
