Ahead of the release of their fifth album, Courteeners have announced details of a new single and their biggest UK tour to date.
No One Will Ever Replace Us is a modern day anthem dedicated to a very British kind of summertime love. The band’s Liam Fray says of the song, “it’s about finding love in the unlikely surroundings of Glastonbury. There’s almost an under-pinning fear about when you’ve got something so good, and you don’t want it to end.”
The track is available digitally (and as an instant grat with album pre-orders) from Tuesday August 30th. No One Will Ever Replace Us is the second track taken from Courteeners fifth album, Mapping the Rendevous (following the brilliant recently released track The 17th).
Courteeners play a series of autumn dates that takes in arenas and concert halls across the country. The band will play:

The album is Courteeners first release on Ignition Records.
