The Knife have announced plans to play two UK shows in November.

Last month the duo unveiled the video for the first track to be taken from their recent “political cabaret” – watch it below. The clip, titled, ‘För Alla Namn Vi Inte Får Använda’, shows a group of men and women taking part in a dance choreographed by Dom Dugliga known as the “political Macarena”.

Earlier this year, the band announced that they would be collaborating with the art group Ful to set up an “anti-national cabaret” called ‘Europa Europa’ which focuses on Sweden and the EU’s immigration policies.

The duo released their fourth album ‘Shaking The Habitual’ in 2013.
