The four-piece will be playing 11 dates kicking off at Exeter University on 10 November.

Tickets for shows, which will support their forthcoming album Slipway Fires, will go on sale at 9am on 2 October.

Speaking about their third record, which is preceded by new single Wire To Wire on 27 October, frontman Johnny Borrell said: "Strangely the new record has come together really quickly."
