Orbital have announced an extensive UK tour for later this year.

The dance duo are touring in support of their new album, 'Wonky', which came out in April this year. The album is the dance duo's first LP since their 2004 effort 'Blue Album'.

The tour consists of 13 shows across the UK, kicking off on December 1 at Manchester's Warehouse Project and running until December 15, when the duo headline the second of two nights at London's O2 Academy Brixton. The tour also includes stops in Sheffield, Bournemouth, Birmingham, Preston, Leicester, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Bristol, Brighton and Oxford.

'Wonky' is the pair's eighth studio LP, and was recorded in Brighton and mixed by Depeche Mode/U2 knob twiddler Flood. It also features collaborations with Zola Jesus and UK MC Lady Leshurr.

Speaking about the title track - the video for which stars comedian Mat Horne and which you can see at the bottom of the page - the band's Phil Hartnoll said: "This is one of our key tracks from DJing last summer, one that came out of nowhere. We were so surprised by the reaction to this, it just went down really well. Right at the last minute we got Lady Leshurr to do her vocal, in one of our 'correction sessions' for the album, after we had been DJing it. It turned out brilliantly."

Orbital will play:

Manchester Warehouse Project (December 1)
Edinburgh HMV Picturehouse (2)
O2 Academy Bristol (3)
O2 Academy Leicester (4)
