I really liked Kyte's old stuff but I'm not quite sure what I think of their new songs on first listen, they're sounding more electronic and the vocals sound a little strange, might grow on me though.

Yeah, I definitely heard this. I think it was a rumour though, but a pretty solid one.
Still, I don't see why There For Tomorrow would tour with The Friday Night Boys a couple weeks before their GIAN tour. I guess they could just be trying to get a huge boost over here.

The Swellers have posted the dates for GIAN introduces, as well as a bunch of headline dates. Anabor are on a tour in America at the time.. and I don't see There For Tomorrow sticking around long enough to tie onto the GIAN dates ,if they're confirmed for TFNB. I don't know about Framing Hanley but, right now, The Swellers are the only band on the Intro tour for sure.

Kill Hannah and My Passion tour the UK in May:

2nd May: Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth
4th May: King Tut's, Glasgow
5th May: Academy 2, Newcastle
6th May: Academy 2, Manchester
7th May: Electric Ballroom, London
8th May: Academy 2, Birmingham
9th May: Academy, Bristol

Kill Hannah really need to get some new supports. Will be interesting to see if they actually follow through with these dates.
