Stereophonics have announced four intimate warm-up shows before their set at the Olympic Opening Ceremony Concert in Hyde Park in July.

The band will kick off at Llandudno Venue Cymru on July 22, followed by dates at Derby Assembly Rooms, Grimsby Auditorium and finally Cambridge Corn Exchange.

The band are currently working on their eighth studio album which is slated for release in 2013. It will be the follow-up to 2009's 'Keep Calm And Carry On'.

Last year the Stereophonics donated a percentage of proceeds from their Christmas gigs to their village football team. Cwmaman Institute FC, of Welsh Football League Division 1, are to receive an undisclosed cash injection after appealing to Kelly Jones and co to help out with their running costs.

The band's frontman also recorded a tribute song for the late Wales football manager Gary Speed, who was found dead in his home on November 27. The singer has recorded a cover of Andy Williams' classic track 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' in honour of Speed, and it was reported that Speed's widow asked for the song to be played at his funeral on December 9.

Stereophonics will play:

Llandudno Venue Cymru (July 22)
Derby Assembly Rooms (23)
Grimsby Auditorium (24)
Cambridge Corn Exchange (25)

Stereophonics tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (June 1) and will be priced at £28.50 (subject to booking fee). To check the availability of Stereophonics tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
