The tour will start in London at the Roundhouse on 10 November and finish up in Manchester on 21 November.

It’ll be in support of their upcoming self-titled, third album which features singles “Anything But Me” and “Silk Chiffon”.

The latter is a collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers, who the trio have previously toured with, calling the singer “dad”.

The group recently released “Kind of Girl”, the third single to be lifted from the album, alongside the music video.

The Western-inspired video sees the trio don cowboy hats, fake moustaches and denim jackets to perform as drag kings.

Discussing the video, band member Katie Gavin said: “The video for this song highlights another layer of meaning that we feel the song holds, which is that we as queer people are particularly vulnerable when we are sharing how we identify and how we would like to be perceived.

“We wanted to play with the gendered nature of this song because we all three have different relationships to girlhood (and Naomi is non-binary, so not a girl at all!). It was a gift to be able to king for this video in a way that felt earnest and comfortable and hot.”

She continued: “The experience brought home the fact that it’s not enough for queer and trans people to be clear about who we are – we also need a community around us that hears us, believes us, honours us, and supports us.

“We’re very proud of what we made and grateful to everyone who was a part of it. We hope the bigots absolutely hate it.”

The group responded to fan’s reactions to the video, tweeting: “ok sobbing hysterically at the lovely reactions to kind of girl from our trans and gnc family. we love you.”.
