The band are teaming up with LIFEbeat, a leading national nonprofit focused on educating America’s youth (13-29) about HIV and STI prevention.

Announcing the news on Twitter, Alt-J wrote: USA + Canada. “We’re teaming up with @Lifebeat to talk about safe sex, risks + support services while on the road this spring. Look for them at our upcoming shows to say hi, grab some condoms and learn how to stay safe.” You can see the tweet below.

Meanwhile, Alt-J have told fans to expect a ‘passionate’ set from them as they return to headline Latitude Festival for a second time.

The band previously headlined the festival in 2015. This year they’ll be joined by The Killers and Solange alongside performances from the likes of Mogwai, Wolf Alice, The Vaccines and many more.

“Well, we have an award-winning light show and we’ve become more competent at playing our songs than the last time we played,” frontman Joe Newman told NME. “We really love Latitude, and it’s a festival very close to our hearts so I think there be a certain amount of passion.”

Asked if this was a stepping stone to the band going on to headline the likes of Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds in the future, Gus Unger-Hamilton replied: “It would be lovely. We don’t like to count our chickens before they’re hatched.
