Since founding in 2010 the four-piece have released two albums, Bad Blood (2013) and Wild World (2016); both of which reached No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart. The band have also won a Brit Award and were nominated for Grammy, MTV Europe and World Music Awards.
For the 2019 tour the band have reduced the number of live shows with the intention of breaking in new material ahead of their third album Doom Days. News of the albums release date has not yet been confirmed.
Speaking of the tour frontman Dan Smith said : "We've spent most of this last year working on loads of new music and touring different versions of our songs, so now we're excited to head back out and revisit more intimate rooms and play a bunch of new songs in the lead up to our new album"
