LOCAL favourites Marmozets are back on the road after recording their second album.

The Bingley band, who made their live debut as teenagers in Keighley, played a warm-up tour during the summer in advance of playing the Reading and Leeds Festivals.

After selling out every date they have announced a headline tour of 11 dates, including the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on October 21.

The eagerly-anticipated new album has been produced by Gil Norton who previously worked with Foo Fighters and Pixies.

The album follows the 2014 debut The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets which earned the band Kerrang!’s coveted Album Of The Year award as they became the hottest new band on the Brit alt-rock scene.

Further acclaim for the album came from The Guardian, saying “songs flit around from riff to riff, as if Marmozets were bursting to fill each song with ideas” and Q called the album “a very impressive, ambitious debut”.

Noisey highlighted vocalist Becca Macintyre as someone who “could be instrumental in a big change for British rock… Becca is challenging British rock and setting a high bar for other bands because she’s just an amazing fronthuman”.

Jack Bottomley, guitarist with the Marmozets, said: “Everyone’s so excited to get back on the road, we really can’t wait. We’re all in a really good place and we’re totally ready for what’s to come.”

Marmozets can also be seen at the Welly Club in Hull (October 17) and Manchester Academy 3 (October 22).
