The pandemic changed a lot, and the killer live shows of Sleaford Mods were put on pause until the right time following the release of their latest album Spare Ribs, which arrived at the beginning of 2021. With the world cautiously opening back up and shows returning, the English post-punk stars have announced their 2022 North American tour.
The tour will take the band across the country with two dates in Los Angeles, California with stops across the coasts before settling in Washington D.C. at The Black Cat. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
The tour announcement arrives with a spirited cover of “Don’t Go” by Yazoo, a now-defunct synth-pop project with former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet. Sleaford Mods tap into the wonderful ‘80s cheesiness of the classic featuring an eclectic vocal performance by Jason Williamson. The duo have previously tested out this cover at several shows across the U.K. throughout the fall.
