The Courteeners have announced that they will play a huge one-off show in Manchester in December.

The Liam Fray – fronted band, who are currently putting the finishing touches to the follow-up to their 2010 second album 'Falcon', will headline the city's Manchester Arena on December 7. Support will come from The View.

This is the fourth year in a row that the band have performed a celebratory gig in their hometown in December.

Last year they played Manchester's O2 Apollo on December 8 and 9 and played once again at the Manchester Arena in December 2010. They also performed at Manchester Central in 2009.

Speaking to NME previously about the band's new album, in a video which you can see at the bottom of the page, frontman Liam Fray said: "It took a long time to write, it's pretty serious, in terms of its subject matter, but it doesn't take itself very seriously. You can't say something really heartfelt, without cracking a joke in there too. That's what it's like."

When asked about the sound of the new material, Fray added: "It doesn't sound like us. I don't even think our second album sounded like us. Once you think you have a sound, you're limiting yourself in what you can produce."

Tickets go onsale on Friday (August 31) at 9am (BST). To check the availability of The Courteeners tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
