The Arctic Monkeys are back and have finally announced a UK and Ireland tour.
The band have played several dates and festivals across Europe this summer, but have only played at Reading and Leeds festival in the UK this year.
But on Friday (23 September), the band released new tour dates, which will see them visit a host of venues across the UK and Ireland.
Cities visited include London, Glasgow, Dublin and their hometown Sheffield’s Hillsborough Park, with the shows taking place throughout May and June next year.
Support will come from fellow rock and roll bands like The Hives and Liverpool newcomers The Mysterines.
The Sheffield rock band recently announced that their new album The Car will be released on 21 October and will feature 10 new songs written by Turner and made with the band’s regular producer James Ford.
According to a press release, The Car finds Arctic Monkeys “running wild in a new and sumptuous musical landscape and contains some of the richest and most rewarding vocal performances of Alex Turner’s career”.
The band’s new single “There’d Better Be A Mirrorball” was released in August, marking their first music in four years.
