My Passion have announced plans to tour the UK this April and May in support of their upcoming album, 'Inside This Machine'.

Having spent the most of 2010 writing and recording 'Inside This Machine', frontman Laurence Rene had the following to say about the upcoming tour:

"We have begun to develop each tour as its own theme and with its own identity with so many standard shows we want to create a performance that locks in the memory as unforgettable time in our lives...

We want people to come out thinking 'what the hell will they do next?' We want that excitement and that fresh performance each tour to match the development and power behind the music.

This tour will see us as golden beings from inside the machine, for me it relates to the balance of life and it's fragility and having everything one minute and being able to lose it the next.

It's about realising that we are all miracles and acting on that, making the most of each day, and embracing life.

It really feels like we're at the beginning of a new adventure and I want everyone to get involved! We won't be ignored...the future starts now."
