Today Sleaford Mods announce their biggest tour yet. Kicking off in Manchester at The Ritz on September 23rd and ending in their hometown of Nottingham at Rock City, the tour also sees the duo brandishing their sonic attack at The Forum in North London.

“This is our first ‘posh’ tour; big bus, everything,” states frontman Jason Williamson. “It’s a big deal. Sleaford Mods at Rock City, The Forum, Manchester Ritz etc. Who would of thought it? Not fucking me.”

Their third ‘proper’ album is released July 10th via abstract-punk label Harbinger Sound on vinyl, CD and download. The album will be housed in a gatefold sleeve designed by Steve Lippert and was mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy. Everything else was done by Sleaford Mods.

“Key Markets was a large supermarket bang in the centre of Grantham from the early 1970’s up until around 1980,” explains Jason Williamson. “My mum would take me there and I’d always have a large coke in a plastic orange cup surrounded by varnished wood trimmings and big lamp shades with flowers on them. Beige bricks with bright yellow points of sale and large black foam letters surrounded you and this is why we called the album ‘Key Markets’. It’s the continuation of the day to day and how we see it, the un-incredible landscape.”
