Klaxons have embarked on their first UK tour since completing their long-awaited second album.

The band played the Southend Chinnery's venue on Wednesday (May 26) then Colchester's Arts Centre last night.

The four-piece finished recording the tentatively-titled 'Touching The Void' following a series of aborted sessions with producer Ross Robinson in Los Angeles earlier this year. They recently made 'Flashover', a song from the album, available to listen to online.

Last night they played a 14-song set, kicking off with 'Flashover', and played six further songs destined for the album - 'Same Space', 'Valley Of The Calm Trees', 'Twin Flames', 'Echoes', 'Astronomical' and 'Future Memories'.

Singer/keyboard player James Righton was pleased with how the gig went, telling NME after the show: "That was definitely the start of something right there. The beginning of a new chapter for us, I think."

The band are now set to continue their UK tour by playing Plymouth on June 2.

'As Above, So Below'
