Friendly Fires have announced details of the rescheduled dates for the recent UK shows they were forced to cancel.

The band have been forced to shelve shows in Southampton, Nottingham, Newcastle, Manchester and have also confirmed that their show in Glasgow, which was due to take place tomorrow (November 18), is now also postponed.

The reason for the postponement is that frontman Ed Macfarlane contracted a viral throat infection and was deemed too ill to perform. All tickets bought for the original shows will remain valid for the new dates.

Friendly Fires will now play the dates in mid-December, beginning at O2 Apollo Manchester on December 15 and finishing at Glasgow Barrowland on December 20.

The rescheduled dates would indicate that Macfarlane is likely to return to action on Saturday (November 19) at the band's planned gig at O2 Academy Leeds, but ticket holders are advised to check for regular updates in any case.

Friendly Fires released their second album 'Pala' earlier this year, you can watch a video of the band giving NME a track-by-track guide to the album by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

Friendly Fires will play:
