The Orwells have announced details of a UK tour to take place in June.

The US band will play five shows in the summer ahead of a number of confirmed appearances at festivals in the UK and Europe. Starting at Liverpool's East Village Arts Club on June 2, on the band will then travel to Edinburgh, Nottingham and London before ending their jaunt in Manchester on June 6. Scroll down for ticket details.

The Orwells will release their second album this summer. Recorded between Woodstock and London with producers Chris Coady and Jim Abbiss, the record is the follow up to their 2012 debut 'Remember When' and will be preceded by new single 'The Righteous One' on March 24.

Last month (February), The Orwells played London's 100 Club as part of the NME Awards Shows 2014 with Austin, Texas.

Introducing themselves by shouting "The Orwells, from Chicago, Illinois!" the band included three new songs in the set, titled 'Bathroom Tile Blues', 'Gotta Get Down' and 'Let It Burn' in their show. The set also included a cover of The Black Lips' 'Not A Problem' and fan-favourite Orwells tracks including 'Mallrats'. The encore saw a version of The Stooges' 'I Wanna Be Your Dog', while 'Halloween All Year' segued into a short cover of The Foundations' 'Build Me Up Buttercup'.

Towards the end of the set, a female fan leapt on stage and wrapped herself around Cuomo, sharing a lingering kiss with the frontman.

The Orwells will play:

Liverpool East Village Arts Club (June 2)
Edinburgh Electric Circus (3)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (4)
London Dingwalls (5)
Manchester Gorilla (6)
