Vessels have announced UK tour dates ahead of the release of their debut album, ‘White Fields and Open Devices’, which is due out in June this year. The Leeds-based five-piece recorded their album at Pachyderrm Studios in Minneapolis in December last year under the stewardship of John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky/Black Mountain).

The album will be preceded by the release of the digitally-exclusive single, 'One Hundred Times in Every Direction', which will be backed up by a rework of live favourite, 'The Beast', which originally appeared on the self-released Vessels EP.

Vessels play live at the Cockpit in Leeds on 15th May with Black Mountain and The Paper Chase.
