Razorlight have announced details of their first live date since 2012.

The band, fronted by Johnny Borrell, will perform at Electric Ballroom in London ahead of a summer of festival dates. The gig takes place on June 4 and falls 10 years after the release of debut album 'Up All Night.'

Only Borrell remains of the line-up who wrote and recorded 'Up All Night', released in June 2004, with founding members Björn Ågren, Carl Dalemo and Christian Smith-Pancorvo all having departed and been replaced in the subsequent decade.

The current line-up of the band sees Gus Robertson on guitar, drummer Skully and 18 year-old Brazilian João Mello playing bass. João joins Razorlight on bass after spending the past year touring with Johnny Borrell's solo band Zazou as their sax player.

Last year, Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell released his debut solo album 'Borrell 1'. He recently recorded a four-track EP, 'The Artificial Night', set for release on April 28.

Razorlight will appear at a number of festivals this summer, often performing on the same bill as Borrell's solo project. Volks Festival in Plymouth plus Chester Rocks, Kendal Calling, Y Not and Wakestock among others.

Razorlight will play:

London Electric Ballroom (June 4)
