Blur have announced another string of dates in the USA, Mexico, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Posting a message on twitter earlier today, the band confirmed that they will be playing Coachella festival in California on April 12 and 19. They will also play Mexico's Vive Latino Festival on March 16, followed by Hong Kong's Asia World Arena on May 6 and the New Taipei County Stadium on May 9.

The Britpop icons, who reformed last year for a string of intimate UK live dates culminating in a massive show in Hyde Park to celebrate the closing of the London 2012 Olympic Games, have recently announced a number of European tour dates. They will play Hungary's Sziget festival in August, as well as Primavera in Spain and Rock Werchter in Belgium.

It is not yet clear whether the band will be playing any more new material for future live dates. Blur penned two new tracks – 'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan' – for the Hyde Park shows, and the band have hinted that more could follow, with producer William Orbit telling NME earlier this year that the band had been in the studio working on new material with him. However, guitarist Graham Coxon recently stated that there will not be another Blur album in the near future.
