Experimental five-piece Squid are making elastic, kinetic songs brimming with ideas that push at the outer limits of contemporary music.

Tickets go on general sale at 10.00 on Thursday 09 December 2021.

Part of a new generation of incendiary English guitar bands, Squid’s debut album on Warp Records, Bright Green Field, delivered a collection of cathartic tracks that offer surprising plot twists, intricate arrangements and punchdrunk melodies. Cementing the band’s reputation as one of the most exciting new acts to arrive in years, the album garnered perfect scores from several publications and high praise from The Observer, The Times, The Quietus, New Yorker, Pitchfork and NPR Music.

Squid's songs are constantly in a state of flux, setting up intensely rhythmic grooves with lean riffs or phrases that unravel into glorious mayhem and carefully orchestrated meltdowns. In spite of the dystopian tensions at play, their songs are simultaneously thrillingly idiosyncratic and infectiously catchy.

Get ready for Squid to blow the doors off your Friday night.

Squid have always pushed the boundaries of genre. Now they’ve trampled them for good.
