This announcement comes just days after they performed to a full tent at Neighbourhood Weekender, as their stock continues to grow.

The band have also recently released tickets for a hometown show to celebrate the release of their debut album.

How Beautiful Life Can Be is out on September 24, with the four-piece performing at The Monaco, in Hindley, on the same day.

This show will be a more intimate affair ahead of their big UK tour, which includes dates at Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse and O2 Academy Sheffield.

Fellow Wigan bands The Stanleys and Flechettes will also be joining them along the way as support acts.

The Lathums most recent single, I’ll Get By, was released in August, with the music video showing them travelling from Wigan to Blackpool, meeting a range on their journey.

This song will help to make up their first LP, with The Great Escape, I See Your Ghost and Oh My Love also among the tracklist.

Prior to the release, they head on tour supporting Blossoms throughout September, giving them a further taste of playing in front of packed arenas.
