Acclaimed indie punk trio Dream Wife will headline Esquires later this year.

The band released their explosive second album So When You Gonna… last year and will return to the Bedford venue having previously headlined in 2017.

Dream Wife’s latest LP earned the trio a number 18 spot on the UK Album Chart and a number one spot on the Official Record Store Chart of Independent Retailers.

It was also the only album in the top 20 to be produced by an all womxn / non-male engineering team, as well as the only non-major label release and was subsequently named one of Rough Trade’s Top 10 Albums of 2020.

The Marta Salogni produced and mixed record dealt with topics such as miscarriage and gender equality.

Dream Wife, whose sound combines punk, pop and alternative influences, are singer Rakel Mjöll, guitarist Alice Go and bassist Bella Podpadec.

A full UK tour, originally due to take place in April this year, was recently rescheduled for March and April 2022. Original tickets remain valid.

Dream Wife will headline Esquires on Sunday, August 8.

Tickets cost £14 in advance and go on sale at 10am on Friday, April 9 via SeeTickets.

Support is TBC. For more details, visit www.thepadpresents.com and https://dreamwife.bandcamp.com
