The dates kick off at Glasgow's O2 ABC 2 venue on June 16 and run until June 21 when the band headline Brighton's Coalition. The run includes the band's biggest UK show to date at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.
The album has been produced by Jon Brion, who has previously worked with Kanye West, Rufus Wainwright and Of Montreal. It is due for release in late spring.
