Miike Snow have announced two UK shows for this May.

The band, who are set to release their new album 'Happy To You' on March 26, will play two large-scale dates in London and Manchester.

The first show will take place at Manchester's HMV Ritz on May 30 and the second will happen on May 31 at London's O2 Academy Brixton. Niki And The Dove and Alex Metric will provide support at both shows.

Miike Snow have previously told NME that they feel more like "a proper band" with the release of their second album. The band's Pontus Winnberg said of this: "We hadn't toured or done any live shows before we did the first album, so this time we brought that whole vibe and new experience into the studio. It became something different. I think we feel more like a proper band now."

Christian Karlsson added: "We had more time with this album – last time, we just played around in the studio and we didn’t even know if there was going to be a record. This time, we knew we were doing a record, so we did it exactly the way we wanted to. We had full orchestra, strings – whatever we wanted to do with this one."

Tickets go onsale on Friday (February 17) at 9am (GMT). To check the availability of Miike Snow tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
