UPDATE (10/11): After a handful of cancellations, Modern English have pushed their tour celebrating their 1982 album, After the Snow, to 2022. The headlining tour will be split into three legs: The first will kick off March 12th in West Palm Beach, Florida and wrap March 27th in Phoenix; the second will start June 8th in Portland, Oregon and wrap July 2d in Evanston, Illinois; and the third will begin September 7th in Philadelphia and end September 24th in Buffalo, New York. (A full itinerary is below.)

“When we finally play the whole of the After the Snow album for the first time on tour, emotions will run high,” frontman Robbie Grey said in a statement. “Expect a lot of pent up energy and excitement. It’s been a long time coming and will be worth the wait.”


Modern English have rescheduled their Covid-19-postponed 2020 U.S. tour in celebration of their 1982 album After the Snow.

The new wave band will now embark on their trek beginning August 31st in Minneapolis, including stops at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, before concluding with a three-night stand September 17th-19th at West Springfield, Massachusetts’ the Big E. The tour promises to follow all Covid-19 protocols and safety measures.

At each show, Modern English will perform their 1982 LP After the Snow — which includes their hit “I Melt With You” — in its entirety as well as other highlights from the band’s catalog.

“We can’t wait to explode back on stage,” frontman Robbie Grey said in a statement. “It’s been a tough year for everyone and we want to bring some energy and excitement to everybody. We look forward to seeing you and all being together in the same room.”

Additionally, Modern English have offered up their “Lockdown Version” of “I Melt With You,” recorded in 2020, as a download to benefit the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA). “We were all at our homes in the U.K. apart from [guitarist] Daniel [Jakubovic] who was in Los Angeles,” Grey said. “We decided to record ‘I Melt With You’ to put a smile on people’s faces. We are aware of how much the song is loved and just thought a lockdown version would make people happy in these crazy times.”
