Band will bring new album 'In Some Way, Shape Or Form' over in early 2012

Four Year Strong have announced a UK tour for January next year.

The Massachusetts pop rockers, who release their fourth album ‘In Some Way, Shape Or Form’ on November 7, will play six dates on the trek.

The gigs begin at Brighton‘s Concorde venue on January 25 and run until February 1, when the band headline London‘s Koko venue.

‘In Some Way, Shape Or Form’ is the follow-up to their 2010 album ‘Enemy Of The World’ and is the band’s first LP since their 2005 debut album ‘It’s Our Time’ not to feature keyboardist Josh Lyford, who announced his departure from the band earlier this year.

Lyford’s departure came after the group decided that they wanted to record their fourth album without keyboard or synthesisers.
