Three-piece electronic trio Years & Years will be embarking on a UK tour with dates throughout the summer after the release of their new album Communion, which is due to hit the shelves on July 10th.
After a number of EPs and singles that have been hugely well received, with a UK number 1 setting the standard this year, Years & Years have become one of the most in demand groups of today, with Australian, European and several UK dates now in the pipeline throughout festival season and beyond.
Years & Years’ UK number 1 King, which was released at the beginning of the year, debuted at the top spot and went gold with over 100,00 sales. To make 2015 even more exciting for the trio, Years & Years also won the BBC Sound of 2015 Award, beating the likes of James Bay, Slaves and Sunset Sons to the post.
In their latter group of UK dates this year, Years & Years will be visiting Leeds on two occasions, firstly to play Leeds Festival and secondly to play at The O2 Academy on October the 14th.
