August 2018 saw Tiny Ruins release their latest single ‘How Much’ and embark on a month-long sold out UK & EU tour. ‘How Much’ was a Lauren Laverne BBC6 Headphones Moment and saw the band perform a live session with Marc Riley.

Tiny Ruins are delighted to announce the support artists for each show. Opening in Christchurch is Ben Woods (Wurld Series, Salad Boys) now working under his own name and set to release a debut album this summer produced by Steven John Marr (Doprah, Kane Strang, Yumi Zouma).
