Guy Garvey has said that Elbow's upcoming UK arena tour will be the last we hear from the band for a while.

The singer revealed to The Sun that the group plan to head off to do other things after the November and December tour, and said they will treat the UK tour as a "farewell party".

Garvey said: "We've got our arena tour this November and December, which will be like a farewell party. We've already done six songs for the next album, then we'll come back to finish it next year."

The frontman is taking a break from Elbow for most of 2013 to concentrate on writing music for a new stage musical adaptation of King Kong, after he was asked to join the writing team by Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja.

"As soon as the tour ends I'm off to New York for six months," he confirmed. "Where better to write songs for a King Kong musical than the place it's set?"

Elbow's UK arena tour kicks off at Nottingham's Capital FM Arena on November 26, the band will then play Wembley Arena on November 27 before they head to Birmingham NIA on November 28 and then Liverpool's Echo Area on November 29, before heading to their Manchester hometown on December 1. They will finish up at London's The O2 on December 2.

Elbow will play:

Nottingham Capital FM Arena (November 26)
London Wembley Arena (27)
Birmingham National Indoor Arena (28)
Liverpool Echo Arena (29)
Manchester Arena (December 1)
London O2 Arena (2)
