The Wicklow quartet have announced a slew of dates before and after venturing to the UK.
Bray band Scustin have announced a headline Ireland and UK tour, featuring a host of special guests.
The tour kicked off on June 23 in Mullingar and has continued through Galway before moving to the band's hometown on June 25. Now the band move on to UK. The tour will finish out in Dublin's Workmans Cellar on July 23.
The George Clinton and David Bowie-inspired quartet released their debut single 'The Killer' back in November to critical acclaim. Scustin recently released the eagerly anticipated follow-up single, 'Sick Of Making Love To You'.

In an interview with Hot Press earlier this year, the four-piece spoke about the influence behind 'The Killer', saying: "Let’s just say The Harbour Bar in Bray has a lot to do with it. I hope that, as the project progresses, the characters will become quite relatable, particularly to Irish people. The overarching theme is “pub talkin’”. I think one of our favourite pastimes as Irish people is getting pissed and just chatting shite. It’s almost cathartic for some people.
"Whether that’s a healthy thing or not, I’m not sure, but it certainly is an interesting concept for us to explore. In terms of who inspired the track, I can neither confirm nor deny just how rooted in reality these characters are – but we definitely think they will be relatable."
Frontman Larry told Hot Press: "Scustin was born out of the members of a band called *ROGUE!, and a want to be more ambitious with our songwriting, performing and creative output. And, perhaps, to push a few boundaries. I see Scustin as a universe more than a traditional artist or band."
Sonically the band takes influence from the retro sounds of Ronnie Foster, George Clinton, Jamiroquai, The Streets and Mild High Club while pairing it with a storytelling style that lies somewhere in between the work of Roddy Doyle, Blindboy Boatclub and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
The tour will feature appearances by: Paulie Martin, The Kettle Boilers, Mossy, Punching Peaches, Yellow Tinted Windows, Jossle, Neoarc, Nueroplacid, Alien Chicks, Fizzy Orange, Duck Wax, Human Interest, Sam Healy, and Kill 'Em Charlie.
