Following a succession of glowing reviews and their highest Billboard chart position to date for their recently released sixth album 'Heartthrob', Tegan and Sara can now confirm details of their summer UK tour.
The dates ' listed as below ' follow last year's tour which included arena dates with The Killers as well as select headline shows. Tegan & Sara tickets go on-sale 9am on Friday 1st March and are available here.
Featuring production from Greg Kurstin and Justin Meldal-Johnsen, 'Heartthrob' saw Tegan and Sara deliver a new exuberant and polished sound, and also represents the first album on which the duo co-wrote much of the material together (in the past, each twin would usually write songs independently of the other).
'No one will confuse this with any of our other records,' says Sara. 'It's got a bigger, bolder, happier sound.' Tegan is explicit about the supersized ambitions motivating the record: 'I kept asking myself: Can I hear this in an arena? Can I hear this on a teenager's iPod as they're riding the bus to school?'
