THE Snuts have announced that they will be returning to Glasgow after a hugely successful set at TRNSMT. 

The West Lothian rockers are playing the O2 Academy on October 25 as part of a 14-day headline tour. 

Described as a 'voice for the next generation', the group are releasing their new album Burn the Empire just before the gig, on October 7.

In the album they tackle issues affecting young people such as mental health, poverty, corruption in politics and the negative effects of social media.

The new release comes after the success of their number one selling debut record, W.L.

Speaking about his influences for the new album, lead singer Jack Cochrane said: "The universe delivered us time to create a record where we finally felt we could address some of the topics, be it societal or spiritual, that we have been dying to scream out.

“There are songs about the highs & lows, stuff we really want to talk about and things we cannot help but feel, but have just never made the space to.”

Tickets for the Snuts' tour dates go on sale at 10am on Friday, July 29 via
