The International Teachers Of Pop have announced a full UK tour, to take place throughout October.

The band were formed by Adrian Flanagan and Dean Honer, the men behind both The Eccentronic Research Council and The Moonlandingz, along with Leonore Wheatley (of The Soundcarriers).

They’ve already played a few shows, most notably in a Derbyshire cave known as The Devil’s Arse supporting Jarvis Cocker, at Bluedot Festival and at The Social in London.

We were at the latter, and reviewed it as "the kind of beautiful stoopid you can only do when you’re a genius, or at least completely brilliant."

They revealed their ace debut single ‘The Age Of The Train’ last month which was among our highlights of last month’s music.

Says Adrian Flanagan of what to expect from the October dates: "Heavily Greased souls, tunes catchier than a cold, all Travolta’s moves, a bit of lecturing, a bit of hectoring, crabsticks instead of glowsticks, a crotch full of mirror balls and something that resembles wild abandon.

"In short, pure escape from your Brexit nightmare and ridiculous self centred ambition…you must submit yourself verily to the nerd disco.. and thus become more united than the UN!"

Their tour dates are as follows:


05 – University Drama Studio, Sheffield (tickets)

22 – The Moth Club, London (tickets)

23 – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds (tickets)

24 – Broadcast, Glasgow (tickets)

26 – Metronome, Nottingham (tickets)

27 – The White Hotel, Salford (tickets)
