Clean Bandit to tour Europe in October

Clean Bandit are set to tour Europe later this year.

The 'Tears' hitmakers - comprised of Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson, Grace Chatto, and Neil Amin-Smith - are scheduled to hit the road this October for eight gigs.

The foursome will kick off their line of shows in Paris, France on October 7, before moving on to Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Zurich, and Milan before finishing up at London's Roundhouse on October 24.

Taking to their Twitter account on Monday (18.07.16), the band wrote: "Very excited to announce we're touring Europe this October! Tickets on sale Wednesday at 9am! (sic)"

Meanwhile, the group are planning to release their second album later this year but have admitted it may be delayed because they're still playing around with different cuts.

Cellist Grace explained: "We're still kind of finishing it off. It's nearly done but at the moment we're focusing on the new single that's gonna come out after 'Tears'."

However, the band have confirmed that they've collaborated with Sir Elton John on one of the songs.

The blonde beauty said: "There's loads of really diverse singers on the next album actually. There are different singers on every track. One of my favourites is Labyrinth. That was a really amazing experience and then another but very different singer is Sir Elton John. We've been making a few songs with him. He's lovely and just so quick. As soon as we got in the studio he just didn't stop playing piano - even when he was talking to us he was still composing at the same time."
