Primal Scream have announced an intimate UK tour for this June.

The band, who completed their 18-month tour in support of the reissue of their seminal 1991 album 'Screamadelica' last year, will play three dates in Scotland this summer.

The gigs kick off at Inverness Ironworks on June 14, before moving on to Aberdeen Music Hall on June 15. The band wrap things up with a headline show at Dunoon's Queens Hall on June 16.

The shows, which will act as warm-ups for the band's shows at Isle Of Wight Festival and Hop Farm Festival, will be the group's first scheduled live dates since bassist Gary 'Mani' Mounfield left to rejoin The Stone Roses.

Speaking to NME about this previously, singer Bobby Gillespie revealed that he asked Happy Mondays' dancer Bez to replace Mani, but the dancer told him he couldn't play.

He said of this: "I was at an awards ceremony and Bez said to me, 'What are you gonna do now that Mani's gone?' and I said, 'Can you play the bass, Bez?' How cool would that be? Bass and maracas! He was like, 'I'd love to do it Bob, but I can't fucking play!'"

Primal Scream are currently working on the follow-up to their 2008 album 'Beautiful Future'.

Primal Scream will play:

Inverness Ironworks (June 14)
Aberdeen Music Hall (15)
Dunoon Queens Hall (16)


Tickets go onsale today (April 20) at 9am (GMT). To check the availability of Primal Scream tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
