POND have announced six UK dates this summer, in support of their latest album.

The Weather is scheduled for release on 5 May, and will now be followed in June with shows in England and Scotland and a wider European tour.

Brighton, Leeds, London, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow will all receive a visit, with tickets going on sale this Friday at 9am.

POND recently released The Weather‘s lead single, Sweep Me Off My Feet, and its opening track 30000 Megatrons.

On Valentine’s Day they played a small show at London’s Moth Club, but the venues for the June tour will prove more spacious.

The European run kicks off on 27 May at London Calling Festival in Amsterdam.

They’ll also be at Primavera Sound Festival in Spain and Portugal, as well as playing dates in countries including France, Italy and Israel.
