How It Falls is released on February 7, shortly after the band's first headline tour begins.

The single received its first ever play on Jericho Keys' BBC Introducing Show on BBC Radio York on January 18.

After debuting the track, Jericho said: "It proper caught me off guard and grabbed me by the shoulders when I first listened to that when I was sent it during the week. It's only two minutes and 13 seconds long but it's a proper little indie dance floor filler.

"Another Feens song to get stuck inside your head for days."

In November last year the band announced their first headline tour including dates in Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Northampton, Swansea, Hull and Scarborough.

They originally booked one tour date for Scarborough - Saturday February 29 2020 at the Tipi Venue at Scarborough Open Air Theatre - but after it sold out in just 12 hours, they added a second date on Friday February 28.

On the Friday the band will be supported by Rats and The Northern Riots and on the Saturday, Fever and Without Reason.

Jericho Keys will be doing a DJ set at both nights.

The Feens have gone from strength to strength since forming in late 2016.

In 2019 they gained national radio plays on Radio X, BBC Radio One and BBC 6 Music, played a support slot for Inhaler in Leeds in July and secured their first major festival appearance at Y Not? Festival in Derbyshire.

Singers Freddie Schmuck, 21, and Adam Lodge, 25 (also on bass), drummer Perrie Bunton, 25, and lead guitarist Sam Dowling, 27 have never been shy about their ambitions for the band, and the upcoming tour is the next step towards success.

Supported by promoters This Feeling, who took the band to Y Not?, and championed bands such as Blossoms and Catfish and the Bottlemen and the start of their careers, The Feens will play eight dates next year.

On Twitter, Radio X said: "You're guaranteed to catch the next big thing first at This Feeling, especially their tips shows.

"All over the UK this month kicking off the new decade with the cream of emerging indie bands from across the land, get yourselves down and in the zone."

Tickets for the second Scarborough date, are available here.
