Joe and Jono from the band explain in more detail on both the single release date change, and the headline shows.
Jono Yates, guitarist: 
"We're going to be playing a few club shows to get our livers ready for The Blackout tour. These will be in support of our single, Run For Cover which will released a little later on September 2nd. Sorry about the delay in getting it out!" 

Joe James, vocalist: 
”People have been begging us to headline our own shows, so just before we go on tour with the Blackout, we're going to give you what you want, happy now? Good.. 

However, with all good news comes bad news, we didn't expect the reaction to run for cover to be so overwhelmingly positive, you guys have really gone mad for it posting it everywhere and spreading the love, so we've decided to push back the release date to coincide with our headline run so we can make it even bigger! 

As always thank you for the incredible support! Stay classy.”
