They will play 2 shows prior to the album release:-

Friday 11 February High Rocks, near Tunbridge Wells.
Saturday 12 February Grasmere Village Hall.

Here is what British Sea Power had to say about the new album:-

"The new album title is not as bold, not as distinctive as the first one. But the ongoing ten-year plan dictated something less wordy, less knowing at this point. Something... simpler.

"We hope that you will grow to love the name Open Season almost as much as you will love the music that goes with it. And, on the basis that even deaf men will dance to these tunes, we feel sure you will love this album. There is a streamlining of the flow, but there are also songs about honeycomb, guillotines, longshore drift, the human heart and the vast, collapsing snowscapes of Antarctic ice shelf Larsen B. Do not worry. There will be enough for everyone."
