Stone have returned with their new single ‘Queen’, the latest teaser of their upcoming debut album, and have announced a UK and European tour – read on for all the details.

The Liverpool quartet are preparing to release their debut album ‘Fear Life For A Lifetime’ on July 12. You can pre-order/pre-save it now.

And now they have shared their new single ‘Queen’, an anthemic and infectious indie rocker, with the ear-catching opening line, “I could drown in a bath of expensive wine”. Watch the song’s lyric video below.

Frontman Fin Power has said: “I wrote ‘Queen’ from the perspective of the person I was seeing at the time, and the words that they said to me. I remember someone saying to me, ‘You know, I don’t love myself, but I love the way you look at me.’ It’s a song about how falling in love is actually such a powerful thing that it makes you doubt yourself.”

In addition, the band have announced an extended run of UK and European shows, which kick off on September 30 in Berlin, and include 15 UK headline gigs, eventually rounding off in Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse on November 26. Tickets for the UK shows go on sale at 10am on June 19 and you can get yours here.

The new dates join an already-announced run of live in-store events at UK record stores around the release of the album in July.

The album will follow on from their two acclaimed ‘punkadonk’ EPs, and having hit the road with huge names including Sam FenderYungblud and Bruce Springsteen.

The album has been described in a press release as “coming together like a coming-of-age narrative – a place that can help people navigate the tumultuous experiences of young adulthood”.

“If you’ve felt love but not always felt you deserved it; if you’ve been ambitious but also wracked with self-doubt; if you’ve been confident at times but crushed by anxiety at others: this is the album for you,” it adds.

Comprised of Fin Power (vocals) – the son of both The La’s member and frontman of Cast, John Power – Elliot Gill (guitar), Sarah Surrage (bass) and Alex Smith (drums) – the four-piece recorded the album during sessions in Vermont with producer Rich Costey (Sam Fender, HAIMBiffy Clyro).

NME awarded their debut EP ‘Punkadonk four stars in 2021, writing that is depicted “the band explore their own identity while treading a path towards the big time”.

“Though ‘Punkadonk’ is just five tracks long, it never stays in one place long enough for the listener to get a complete handle on it,” it read. “Rather than follow safely in the footsteps of the northern stars they’ve been on the road with, Stone have used their first EP as an opportunity to build upon their own punchy identity – and, thanks to the electricity coursing through ‘Punkadonk’, that decision has paid off.”
