Declan McKenna Announces Autumn UK Tour Details.
Declan McKenna is very pleased to announce details of a UK tour for the Autumn.
The new live dates follow the recent release of Declan’s critically acclaimed debut album, What Do You Think About The Car? and his show-stealing performances at the Reading & Leeds Festivals over the weekend.
The tour will mark a meteoric twelve months for the eighteen-year-old Brit who has toured the world relentlessly with his melody-heavy indie pop songs, each fizzing with those insatiable guitar hooks and Declan’s socially conscious lyrical nous.
