Public Service Broadcasting has announced that the first five dates of their upcoming tour (Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham and Norwich) have been postponed until February next year due to personal, family health reasons.

The final 3 dates – Cardiff, Southampton and London – will go ahead as planned.

Tickets will still be valid for all rescheduled shows, and if you are unable to make the new show date you can contact your point of purchase (e.g. Seetickets, Musicglue, AXS or the venue) for a refund.

A message from Public Service Broadcasting:

“We apologise wholeheartedly for any inconvenience caused. In the past 3 years of intensive touring and 350+ shows we haven’t cancelled or postponed a single gig, and doing so this time is not a decision we have taken lightly. For us, though, just as we’re sure for all of you, family comes first, and we don’t feel able to fulfil the first week of dates given our current circumstances.”

The affected shows will now take place on the following dates:

7th February 2016 – Refectory, Leeds Tickets
8th February 2016 – Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh Sold Out
10th February 2016 – O2 Academy, Liverpool Tickets
11th February 2016 – Rock City, Nottingham Tickets
12th February 2016 – OPEN, Norwich Tickets

Francois & The Atlas Mountains will support PSB for the unaffected shows but sadly can’t make the rescheduled ones; support will be confirmed as soon as possible for those dates.

October 4th 1957 marked the start of the space age, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik I. The Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank Observatory was the largest radio telescope in the world and the only device that could track Sputnik’s carrier rocket by radar.

The Lovell Telescope first picked up the Sputnik rocket on 11 October 1957, on the anniversary of that event 58 years later; Public Service Broadcasting filmed the video for‘Sputnik’ in front of this iconic structure.

The video celebrates the launch of the first satellite into earth orbit and highlights The Lovell Telescope’s role in making space exploration history.

Public Service Broadcasting release a new EP on 20th November which includes a brand new track – ‘Korolev’ – whilst lead single, ‘Sputnik’ – the most dancefloor friendly track onThe Race For Space – has been remixed by some leading lights in the dance and electronic world.

While ‘Sputnik’ gathers tension as it carefully builds to its euphoric finish of wonder, new cut ‘Korolev’ carries a familiar progressive energy with a powerful riff at its core, and quick flashes of a grand brass section.

The EP will be released on 12” vinyl, CD & digital on 20 November along with 4 stellar remixes from Blond:ish, Petar Dundov, Eagles & Butterflies & Plugger. Pre-order via the band’s website
