Slowdive have announced two further reunion gigs for later this year.

The reformed shoegaze band returned to the stage for their first gig in almost 20 years back in May, playing a surprise gig at the Sonic Cathedral label's 10th anniversary party at London's Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen.

They have since been touring European festivals, including slots at Primavera Sound in Barcelona and Latitude last weekend (July 18). They will now follow this up with dates across Asia and North America, before two nights at London's The Forum in Kentish Town on December 19 and 20.

In an interview earlier this year, the band's frontman Neil Halstead suggested that the band may record new material. "The initial impetus [of a reunion] was the idea of doing some new music," he said. "It seemed easier to do that because it's not so public. But then we thought it would be good if we could raise a bit of money to make the record, and doing a couple of gigs would enable us to do that. And that's the way it shaped up – while we're rehearsing we can see if we've got another record in us."

Slowdive released their debut album 'Just For A Day' in 1991. That was followed by 1993's 'Souvlaki' and 1995's 'Pygmalion'.
