Babyshambles have announced details of a headline UK tour later this year.

Pete Doherty will hit the road with his bandmates in September for an extensive run which will involve gigs all the way into October. Starting in Glasgow on September 4, the tour will visit Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Lincoln, Bristol, Oxford, Cardiff and Norwich throughout September as well as a date at London's Brixton Academy. Further shows in October will take place in Sheffield, Hatfield, Leamington Spa, Birmingham, Leicester and Cambridge.

The shows are expected to see Babyshambles perform new songs from forthcoming new album. It was reported earlier this year that Pete Doherty has started work on a new Babyshambles album with producer Stephen Street, who produced the band's last full-length effort, 2007's 'Shotter's Nation'. Bassist Drew McConnell revealed the news to NME, explaining that while the sessions had initially been set for Doherty's second solo album, the album would be released as Babyshambles' third.
