Bowling For Soup have announced a tour of the UK's seaside towns next year – their Surf The UK Tour 2021.

The Texan pop-punks will be joined by Lit and The Dollyrots on the eight-date run, which kicks off in Blackpool on May 1, and ends in Torquay, taking in Grimsby, Scarborough, Bexhill, Margate, Bournemouth and Swansea along the way.

"It’s such a weird time," says frontman Jaret Reddick. "These dates will be 14 months since our last live shows. It is certainly hard to wrap my head around that. I absolutely can not wait to be onstage again, and in front of a UK audience, which everyone knows are the best fans on the planet!

"And holy crap… Lit! And our best buddies The Dollyrots. I can’t think of a better way to kick back into gear! Rest assured, we will be compliant with any and all safety guidelines still in place during this tour! Let's do this!"

"We are beyond excited to get back to the UK and play our rock show with our good buddies BFS!" adds Lit singer AJ Popoff. "The UK is our favourite place to play! Can’t believe it’s taken us this long to tour together!! Gonna be a hell of a show!"
