The band will play Wolverhampton, Liverpool and London in support of new album
Long-running post-hardcore band Billy Talent have announced a handful of tour dates for the UK in May 2022. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on Friday 24 September.
The tour comes in support of their latest album Crisis Of Faith, set for release on Friday 21 January. Recorded in the band's studio in Toronto, the album continues the hyped-up fist-punching rock that made the band famous.
The hard rockers recently put out the album's lead single 'End Of Me' which recruits Weezer's Rivers Cuomo on vocals for an unusually melodic and laid back tune. The band say of the single, 'This is a full circle moment for us. We've admired and have been fans of Weezer since the Blue Album until now.
'Before we had a title, this song was originally called Hendrix+Weezer so it only felt right to ask Rivers to sing on it. The song encompasses the essence of '90s alt.rock which was a hugely impactful and influential time for our band. We're proud of the song and very happy to have Rivers be a part of it.'
Billy Talent's tour will kick off in Wolverhampton on Sunday 29 May, before heading to Liverpool's O2 Academy on Monday 30 May and culminating with a show at London's O2 Islington Academy on Tuesday 31 May.
