Local Natives have confirmed details of a headline UK tour set to take place in October.

The US band, who released their second album 'Hummingbird' in January, will play 11 shows in total including performances in Cambridge, Norwich, Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin and Bristol. A headline performance at London's O2 Academy Brixton will take place on October 17, with the tour ending in Southampton on October 29.

Local Natives will perform songs from their new album on the tour, an album which saw them work with The National for the first time. Speaking to NME about working with The National's Aaron Dessner, Local Natives' guitarist and singer Taylor Rice said: "It was funny working with Aaron, because we just met the band on the road. They were so warm and welcoming and we all really hit it off. They're tour buddies. We were talking about what we wanted to do with our second record, telling Aaron we were writing and talking to producers, and he joked that we should just do it with him."

Local Natives will play:

Cambridge, Junction (October 15)
Norwich, Waterfront (16)
London, O2 Academy Brixton (17)
Newcastle, Sage 2 (20)
Glasgow, Arches (21)
