Portishead are to reissue their 1994 album 'Dummy' to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

The Bristol band have decided against adding any additional material to the re-release, although the first 1,000 copies of 'Dummy' will be pressed on blue vinyl. The record comes packaged in a gatefold sleeve and also includes a digital download card. Pre-orders can be made from Portishead's website from August 13.

The band have a number of festival dates confirmed for the rest of the summer and will play:

Route Du Rock, St Malo, France (August 15)
Pukkelpop, Belgium (16)
Lowlands, Netherlands (17)
Istanbul, KucukCiftlik Park (20)
Rock En Seine Festival, Paris, France (23)
Electric Picnic, Ireland (30)
Artloop Festival, Sopot, Poland (September 5)

Earlier this year, Portishead's Adrian Utley revealed that the band members were "clearing our schedules" in order to work on their fourth album.

Utley was speaking at By:Larm Festival in Oslo on February 27: "We're clearing our schedules so we can get on with it, otherwise it will be another 10 years," he commented, referencing how busy individual members are with other projects. Utley added that he had recently discussed plans for the follow-up to 2008's 'Third' with Geoff Barrow. "We were both really enthusiastic, and enthusiasm counts for a lot in Portishead world," he said.
