MELANIE Martinez has announced her new The K-12 Tour, which will come to the UK in December this year (2019).

The UK run will take in Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Portsmouth, Leeds and London (Shepherd’s Bush Empire on December 9).

General sale will commence at 10am on Friday, August 9.

The K-12 Tour celebrates the release of Martinez’s highly-anticipated new album and its accompanying full-length film – K-12, which will be released on September 6, 2019, and is available to pre-order now.

All pre-orders placed via Martinez’s webstore through to Monday, August 5 will receive pre-sale access to tickets.

Martinez commented: “It’s been a bit since I’ve been on tour and I’m incredibly excited to bring the movie to life on stage. I’m putting all of my energy into making it not only visually stunning and pleasing to the senses but also a fun learning experience and a safe place to express yourself and be accepted for exactly who you are.”

K-12 marks Martinez’s anticipated follow-up to her UK Gold certified debut album, Cry Baby. Produced by Michael Keenan with the exception of one song produced by Kinetics & One Love (who previously collaborated with Martinez on such hits as Dollhouse and Carousel), the new album serves as a soundtrack companion to an eerily enchanting new musical film; written, directed, and starring Martinez.
