The tour follows a secret set that they played at the Woodsies stage this Glastonbury Festival, which marked their fifth appearance at Worthy Farm. Calling Glastonbury “the greatest festival”, Pizzorno noted that the appearance marked “one of the greatest days in this band’s history”, previewing their new record while covering dance classics such as Deee-Lite’s ‘Groove Is In The Heart’.

In an interview released today with NME, frontman Sergio Piozzorno explained the pop-structured mentality behind the band’s eigth record. “Usually, I tend to react to the last album, and I went through it surgically (wahey) so that every eight bars, it hits,” Pizzorno explains. “It’s a pop record, in a way – it’s just big song after big song. I wanted to make the point, then leave as fast as possible.”

Meanwhile, The Streets most recently dropped the contemplative single ‘End Of The Queue’, which was released as part of their upcoming ‘Fabric Presents…’ mix. Mike Skinner’s most recent record ‘The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light’ dropped last October.
