The Fratellis have just finished a 15 date UK tour
The Fratellis played eight new songs from their forthcoming album Here We Stand during an intimate performance in London.
The Glaswegian trio previewed two-thirds of their new record at a special show at Dingwalls on 27 May.
The secret show was held to celebrate the release of their new single Mistress Mabel.
The gig saw punters singing to the likes of Henrietta and Baby Fratelli from their debut album Costello Music.
A number of new tracks were also well received by the crowd, particularly Heady Tale which sparked a huge clap-a-along and Shameless - which the fans were already familiar with.
Acknowledging the songs from their second album singer Jon Fratelli joked: "It's a bit weird playing new songs from the new album when it isn't even out yet."
Despite the warm reception, the band suffered technical difficulties during another new track Acid Jazz Singer when the sound cut out for most of the song.
When order was eventually restored for Top 20 single Henrietta, the band drew huge cheers from the crowd.
New album Here We Stand is released on 9 June
During the show Jon Fratelli was on jovial form constantly thanking the crowd before joking: "Is it a free bar in here? Oh it is. Who is paying for that then?"
The band rounded off their show to huge cheers with Chelsea Dagger which typically saw the whole venue singing the song's catchy refrain.
The gig rounded off the band's recent 15 date UK tour which officially wrapped up at The Great Escape in Brighton on 16 May.
The Fratellis will release their second album Here We Stand on 9 June.
