Guitarist Jez Williams -- who founded the band with his twin brother Andy and singer Jimi Goodwin -- told the Observer newspaper on Sunday, April 4, that he had been misquoted after media reports that their forthcoming tour would "probably" be their last.

Andy Williams said, "I was like, 'The band are splitting up!? No one told me.'"
The band's UK tour to promote 'The Places Between' kicks off at Hull's City Hall on April 28. After that, the band are due to headline a handful of festivals, including Suffolk's Thetford Forest on June 12 and this year's Green Man festival on Aug. 20 alongside the Flaming Lips and Joanna Newsom.
