The Brighton-based indie rockers head for a negelected part of the UK...

British Sea Power are set to give rock music to the Isles of Scilly when they embark on a15-date tour during May.

The Brighton-based band, who release their debut album 'The Decline Of British Sea Power' on June 2, will perform at the Scillonian Club on St Marys Island on May 9, the first date on a UK tour.

A spokesperson for the band said: "British Sea Power feel that The Scilly Isles have simply not had a Fair Deal. Since the pioneering initiatives of Jethro Tull, Echo And The Bunnymen and The Krankies, every makeweight has popped up to the Scottish Isles to play and perform. In stark contrast The Scillies has been starved of inspirational rock music."

Northampton Soundhaus (May 12)
