The View played a warm up show for their forthcoming tour in London

The View have showcased three new tracks from their forthcoming second album at a one-off show in London.

The band played an acoustic show at Proud Galleries in support of their cover artist Ryan McPhail, who held an exhibition of his work at the venue.

The gig was also a warm-up for the Dundonian four-piece's 35 date tour of the UK which starts in Dunfermline on 16 October.

The band are due to release their comeback single 5Rebeccas a week later.

Singer Kyle Falconer kicked off the show performing a cover of The Beatles track I've Just Seen A Face on his own.

He was then joined by bassist Kieren Webster and guitarist Pete Reilly for the band's new single.

Drummer Steven Morrison watched the show from the sidelines.

In between songs from their debut, they also played two further tracks from their second album Which Bitch? including Temptation Dice.

The band went on to perform hit singles Wasted Little DJs and Superstar Tradesman while Same Jeans saw the crowd shouting their trademark chant, 'The View! The View! The View are on fire!'.

Elsewhere, Kieren also took over lead vocals for Skag Trendy during their hour long set.

Introducing Street Lights, Kyle then joked: "Have you all had a good look at the fabulous artistry next door?"

The View are due to release their new album in January 2009.
