Tickets go on sale from 9AM on Friday 23 February. Drenge’s full upcoming tour dates are as follows:

Back in 2015, Drenge posted a video online condemning The Sun newspaper.

Posting the clip on Facebook, which you can watch below, one of the duo is seen holding up a copy of the paper with the headline “1 in 5 Brit Muslims’ sympathy for jihadis”.

It is unclear which band member is carrying the papers but he can be heard saying: “It’s hateful, it’s racist and it’s fit for the bin.”

He then dumps a bundle of copies of The Sun in the bin. Watch below. The band also posted a message saying, “Don’t Buy The Sun”.
