Soft Cell will be playing a short UK tour in November where they will perform the album Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret in its entirety as it celebrates its 40th Anniversary. The performances will also include hits, fan favourites and other surprises from across their career, including a selection of brand new tracks from their forthcoming new album *Happiness Not Included.

With 25 million sales, six UK top 10 singles and a BRIT Award to their name, Soft Cell are one of British music’s most visionary bands. Legendary frontman Marc Almond and producer/instrumentalist Dave Ball first shot to prominence when their singular take on ‘Tainted Love’ raced up charts all over the world, including a two-week run at #1 in the UK and a Top 10 position in the States. It sparked a stellar run of success which saw their first two albums, Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret and The Art of Falling Apart, plus the Non-Stop Ecstatic Dancing mini album all crash into the Top 10.
The impetus for new album *Happiness Not Included started with the phenomenal “final” show at The O2 in London in 2018. Emerging to a rapturous reception at the sold-out 20,000 capacity arena, Soft Cell’s extensive set covered all of the hits and fan favourites. Now Soft Cell are set to return with their fifth studio album ‘*Happiness Not Included, which will be released in spring 2022 via a new deal with BMG. It represents their first new album since they issued Cruelty Without Beauty back in 2002. They will build towards the album’s release by sharing a new single in the autumn and playing some UK shows in November 2021.
