The Gaslight Anthem have added a second date in Manchester to their November tour.

The band will now play the Apollo on November 18 in addition to their previously announced November 17 show. The shows follow the release of their fifth album, 'Get Hurt'. The tour will see them playing their biggest ever UK headline shows, including a date at London's Alexandra Palace on November 19, and gigs in Cardiff, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

The band have promised a "completely different vibe" on their new LP, which is released on August 11. Speaking to NME in this week's issue, available on newsstands or digitally now, frontman Brian Fallon said: "You get a realisation at some point in your career that whatever it is you do, you can no longer continue to do it. You just realise you can't put out the same records forever."

Key to this change was The 1975 and their debut album. The band tracked down producer Mike Crossey in an effort to see if they could tap into something similar to the British group. "We were like, 'well that sounds different – what would happen if a band like us works with a guy who makes records sound like that?'" says Fallon.

The Gaslight Anthem will play:

Manchester Apollo (Manchester 17)
Manchester Apollo (18)
London Alexandra Palace (19)
Edinburgh Corn Exchange (21)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (22)
Birmingham Academy (23)
