Fun Lovin’ Criminals will be touring in February to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their iconic album Come Find Yourself.

And they will be coming to Nottingham’s Rock City on February 6.

Come Find Yourself spent almost a year in the UK charts when it was first released, finally peaking at number seven, and dovetailing with the Britpop sound and scene of the time.

The album also featured the band’s big breathrough UK hit, Scooby Snacks, which was famous for featuring samples from the Quentin Tarantino movies Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.

Other singles from the album included The Fun Lovin’ Criminal and King of New York as well as their cover of Louis Armstrong’s We Have All The Time In The World.

Now, Huey Morgan, Brian Leiser and Frank Benbini will play the album live and in full for the very first time.

Edsel Records will also be releasing the album as deluxe edition and three-CD expanded edition which will be coming out in February.

“After 20 years, Come Find Yourself will be played live in its entirety for the first time,” confirmed Criminals frontman Huey Morgan.

“Our debut album burned a path for crossing genres that we now take for granted.

“The music is now part of our collective lexicon and we are very proud to be able to play it live and share our love of diversity which we have always, as a band, championed.”

The success of come Find Yourself also proved a springboard for the band’s next two albums in the UK, 100% Colombian and Loco, which also both made the top 10.
