The Zen Arcade will be playing to seven venues in one night across the UK this June.
Garage rock band The Zen Arcade have announced their first virtual tour of the UK this month.
The ‘The Many Faces Of We’ tour follows their brand new EP High Fidelity released on the band's own label Dental Records, which reached #1 on iTunes.
"'The Many Faces Of We' aims to showcase The Zen Arcade at the height of their powers and the depths of their delusions. Destructive enabling behaviour comes from the venues listed below who are indulging the band by simultaneously broadcasting the show too," the band said in a press release.
The indie-rock band promises fans an evening of music that spans across four genres, taking their musical cues from Hoodoo Gurus, Jesus And Mary Chain, XTC and Graham Coxon, relentlessly genre-hopping from garage rock, to power pop, to cow-punk.
The Many Faces Of We tour has TOTALLY sold out!

The Cavan outfit is comprised of three ex-members of The Strypes whose stellar rise saw them tour three critically acclaimed albums from Glastonbury to Fuji Rocks via performances for the likes of Jools Holland, The Late Show With David Letterman, and a support tour with Arctic Monkeys.
Their debut single ‘Don’t Say A Word’ released in October 2020 earned massive radio support in Ireland and the US, peaking at No.1 on the Irish iTunes singles chart and ranking at No.12 on the Irish National Home Grown Chart by end of trading on release day.
The band recently performed an exclusive set for the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series which treated fans to covers of John Leyton's 1961 hit single 'Johnny Remember Me', The Housemartins' 'The Mighty Ship', and The Rubs' 'Wrong/Right Girl'.
