Pale Waves: how to get tickets for their 2022 UK tour, dates and prices
Pale Waves have announced a headline UK tour for 2022.
Released this month the album features singles “You Don’t Own Me”, “Change” and “She’s My Religion”, the latter of which has been dubbed a “queer anthem” by their fans.
Singer Heather Baron-Gracie recently told NME that she’s been embracing her sexuality on the latest album after being inspired by band mate Ciara Doran, who is openly gay.
In the interview she said: “My relationship with my family was closed off for a long time, and I saw [Pale Waves drummer] Ciara’s family and how they interacted with their parents and I was like, ‘Well, this is nothing like mine’ and thought, ‘I wish I could be like that.’
“I was 23 when we did that first album, and I wasn’t confident about myself or with my sexuality. I’ve stepped onto a path of wanting to explore myself and I feel confident in myself and proud to own my sexuality. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”
The album marks their first release in three years, following up their breakthrough debut album My Mind Makes Noises. Their debut features singles popular tracks “There’s A Honey” and “Television Romance” and was released via Dirty Hit, whose roster includes The 1975.
Following the release of the album the band won breakthrough awards from the likes of NME and Q and toured with label mates The 1975 in a support slot on their arena tour, as well as sets at festivals across the globe including Reading and Leeds.
Their upcoming tour will see them play some of their biggest shows to date including the Roundhouse in London and their hometown Manchester at the Victoria Warehouse.
