Primal Scream have announced details of a December 2013 UK tour.

Following their set on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, the band will take their 10th album 'More Light' on the road, playing dates in London, Glasgow and Manchester. The album, which was released on May 13 has drawn praise for its politically-charged subject matter. "I'm a conscious person – I'm pretty aware – so I'm writing about what I feel and what I see," Gillespie told NME.

"I don't think a rock'n'roll record is gonna cause any huge social upheavals. I don't think that's on the agenda any more. I don't think rock'n'roll has the cultural gravitas that it once had, if it had any. Maybe it just had some in my mind."

Gillespie also said that he hopes the album will change people's mindsets. "We haven't played that many gigs yet, but there's a lot of different subjects on the record. Songs like 'River Of Pain', 'Tenement Kid' and 'Walking With The Beast', they mean a lot to me and hopefully people can connect with them. If there's a message, it's educate yourself, question authority," he explained.

Primal Scream will play:

London O2 Academy Brixton (December 11)
Glasgow SECC (14)
Manchester Academy (15)
