Midlake have announced plans for a six-date UK and Ireland tour, set to take place in February of next year.

The band release their fourth album, 'Antiphon', on November 4 and play a sold-out show at London's Islington Assembly Hall on October 23. Their 2014 UK tour will kick off at Manchester's The Ritz on February 20, before stops in Wolverhampton, Glasgow, Dublin and Bristol, finishing up at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on February 26.

The follow-up to 2010's 'The Courage Of Others', 'Antiphon' will be the band's first release since the departure of their former vocalist, Tim Smith, who left the group last year. Midlake are currently streaming the title track from the new record at SoundCloud and the song is also being offered as a free download via their website, Midlake.net. Click below to listen.



Speaking about the album, vocalist and guitarist Eric Pulido explained that the band are going in a more rock direction: "It's always through the scope of Midlake, but on 'Antiphon' we wanted to embrace the psychedelia, style and nuance you might hear in bands from yesteryear while also being aware of music influences present now. The result was less folk and more rock. Less nostalgic and more progressive. Now the sky's the limit."

Midlake play:

London Islington Assembly Hall (October 23)
Manchester The Ritz (February 20, 2014)
Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (21)
Glasgow O2 ABC (22)
Dublin Vicar Street (23)
