SQUID ANNOUNCE INSTORE // OUTSTORE TOUR

O MONOLITH LP // WARP // 9 JUNE 2023

With the genre-bending new single UNDERGROWTH and video game still hot off the press, alt-rock experimentalists SQUID have announced a series of intimate shows partnering with record shops around the UK. Starting on 10 June, the day following the release of their sophomore O MONOLITH album, tickets for the tour will be available from 11am on THURSDAY 27 APRIL from: https://squid.ffm.to/o-instore

The band will be performing songs from O MONOLITH at the record stores and beloved local venues, and there will be an exclusive cassette version of the album available on this run. Independent record stores will also have a very limited number of exclusive posters and stickers.

Expansive, evocative and hugely varied, O Monolith retains Squid’s restless, enigmatic spirit. It’s a reflection of the progression of a band always looking to the future. “We’re quite a musically stubborn band and, in an endearing way, it’s a stubborn record,” says singer Ollie Judge. Like its namesake, O MONOLITH is vast and strange, alive with endless possible interpretations of its inner mysteries.
