The Soundtrack Of Our Lives have announced their final UK gig.

After announcing their split, the Swedish six-piece will play their last ever UK show on September 13 at London's Heaven. The gig will follow the release of their seventh and final album, 'Throw It To The Universe', on September 10.

The band will also appear at London's Roundhouse on September 12 as part of the iTunes festival, with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Speaking about the band's decision to pull the plug after 16 years together, singer Ebbot Lundberg said: "My idea when we started this band was that we were gonna peak around 2012. Which suddenly is pretty soon!"

The Soundtrack Of Our Lives formed in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1995. Their third album, 'Behind The Music' was described by Noel Gallagher as "the best album to come out in the last six years" after its release in 2002.

Their former band, Union Carbide Productions, won fans including the likes of Kurt Cobain, REM and Sonic Youth.
