Vessels have announced a full UK tour for July, with the icing on the cake being the confirmation of a slot on Huw Stephen's Lake Stage at the Latitude Festival. The tour kicks off at Leeds' Packhorse venue on Tuesday, 10th July. And if you can't wait that long, they'll also make an appearance at Nasty Fest VII (Faversham, 23rd June).

You can still pick up a copy of the band's debut 7" ('Yuki' / 'Forever The Optimist') on the tour, and the band's second single ('Two Words & A Gesture' / 'Clear & Calm') is due out at the end of the summer.

Writing for Vessels' debut album is already underway.
