Conjurer have announced a six-date tour of the UK, presented by Kerrang! and the Music Venue Trust.

As part of MVT's United By Music Tour, the midlands metallers will play a string of grassroots, independent venues this September – kicking off in the Met Lounge in Peterborough and climaxing at the Hairy Dog in Derby. Support on all dates comes from Unpeople.

Speaking about the tour, Brady Deeprose says, “Conjurer simply would not exist without the UK’s extensive network of grassroots music venues. We cut our teeth playing everywhere from Merthyr Tydfil to Barrow-In-Furness for years, and we were lucky to be able to do so. The threat that GMVs are under is an utter travesty, and something that we are so thankful to MVT for getting involved in – without this network, everyone from fans to bands suffers. Throughout my childhood, I would go to The Roadmender in Northampton, The Vault in Rugby (RIP), The Flapper in Birmingham, and Corporation in Sheffield to both play shows and see my favourite bands – that thriving scene inspired me to pick up a guitar and start a band. If we don’t protect it, we lose the next generation of musicians. It’s that simple.”

"To come full circle, Kerrang! putting us forward for this tour is a real privilege, their support for not just us but the UK heavy scene in general, has been untouchable over the last few years. We hope that MVT continues to have success, and that the UK can continue to foster exceptional talent with a strong roster of grassroots venues to support it.”

Kerrang! Editor Luke Morton adds, “The UK heavy music scene is thriving right now, thanks in large part to the community and support of grassroots venues up and down the country. I’m so excited and proud for Kerrang! to partner with the Music Venue Trust for this very metal incarnation of the United By Music Tour, featuring the mighty Conjurer – a band I’ve seen cause absolute chaos in some of our best independent venues over the years. As fans of rock, metal and alternative music, it's vital we all champion the homegrown, grassroots venues that are the lifeblood of our scene. Support your local venue and make sure you catch Conjurer tearing it to shreds!”

Tickets for the Conjurer tour go on sale Friday at 11am. And every ticket buyer can take a guest with them for free by showing a National Lottery ticket.
