This spring, the band will embark on its first tour in two years, with dates across the US, UK, and EU.
Spoon released their tenth studio album ‘Lucifer On The Sofa’ last month after previewing it with ‘Wild’ along with ‘The Hardest Cut’ and ‘My Babe’. It marked the indie rock veterans’ 10th album, following on from 2017’s ‘Hot Thoughts’.
Speaking to NME about the new album last year, frontman Britt Daniel discussed the rawer approach taken to the record, which was conceived while on the road touring behind ‘Hot Thoughts’.
