Legendary rock band The Stranglers will be touring their classic third album Black and White (stream below on Spotify) in early 2016. The 1978 LP, produced by the legendary Martin Rushent, has been cited by many as the first post punk album on account of its rejection of the musical tropes of the time.

With the exception of 'Nice N' Sleazy', which boasted sci fi synth touches underneath the band's trademark guitars, it eschewed singles. The cover of Dionne Warwick's 'Walk on By' also rejected the punk ideology of short blasts of music with it's elongated organ solo.

The band's date include a shows at Leeds' O2 Academy on Friday 25th March, Full dates below.
