Morrissey-baiting trio Paws release their second album ‘Youth Culture Forever’ via FatCat Records.

Messrs Taylor, Swinney and Drever decamped to the woods (well, a studio) near New York to record the follow-up to debut and Scottish Album of the Year nominee Cokefloat.

Following their US excursion with We Are Scientists, which culminated with an apparent attempt by the former Smiths frontman to cancel their show, the band launch the twelve-track opus with a headline UK tour:

02.06 Cambridge – Portland Arms
03.06 Birmingham – Sunflower Lounge
04.06 London – The Waiting Room
05.06 Manchester – Castle Hotel (free entry)
06.06 Glasgow – The Art School
07.06 Edinburgh – Wee Red Bar
