South coast four-piece The Vanns are about to release the first single from their new album, along with an east coast headline tour.

If you can’t catch them at the sold out Yours and Owls festival in Wollongong they’ve announced a string of gigs this October and November.

James Vann and his mates will hit up Brisbane, Byron Bay, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and an all ages gig at Campbelltown with Wing Defence will be in support.

The new single, How Was I Supposed To Know, is about the collapse of a relationship and showcases the band's roaring rock sound. It will be released to all digital platforms on Friday August 24.

It’s the first single from their soon-to-be named debut album – the mix of which was only finished this week with Oscar Dawson (of Holy Holy) in Melbourne.

“This one is probably most in your face – and it’s a short song too – but full on song on the album. It’s pretty diverse, it’s got some piano on it and a few acoustics,” Vann told the Mercury.

The name of the album is yet to be decided but will mostly likely be our early next year – but a few more singles will be released before then, Vann said.

After the Australian east coast tour the group hope to take their amplifiers and guitars overseas and tour the UK.

Tickets for their tour are on sale now.
