The Longcut release new double A-side single, 'Idiot Check / You Got The Love' on 19th March. Following the release, the Mancunian band will be performing at a variety of UK venues, having just honed their live performance as support for The Charlatans.

The band comment on the tour:
"Playing in front of massive crowds took a bit of getting used to, but nothing can beat that kind of experience, especially when we had a few of our own die-hards down the front,' they say. 'Blackpool Empress Ballroom is the most gorgeous venue I've ever seen, and when the lights went up on the crowd at the end of our set I could have died and been happy. It's just inspired us to keep working our balls off so we can get to headline venues like that ourselves one day."

The headline tour dates read as follows:

17th - London CHALK @ The Scala
18th - Norwich Arts Centre
19th - Southampton Joiners
20th - Manchester The Ritz, High Voltage 2nd Birthday
21st - Glasgow King Tuts
