The Vaccines have announced plans for a UK tour this November.

The band, who are set to release their second studio album 'The Vaccines Come Of Age' on September 3, will play 11 dates on the jaunt, which starts with a show at Plymouth Pavilions on November 15 and finishes with a gig at O2 Academy Bournemouth on November 30.

The Vaccines will play:

Plymouth Pavilions (November 15)
London Alexandra Palace (17)
Leicester De Montfort Hall (19)
O2 Apollo Manchester (21)
Liverpool Mountford Hall (22)
Doncaster Dome (23)

Meanwhile, The Vaccines' frontman Justin Young has claimed many Russian citizens are "apathetic" about the plight of Pussy Riot. Speaking to NME in a video interview you can watch below, the singer said that the jailed punk band's predicament had fascinated the West more than it had members of the Russian public and suggested their incarceration had "pulled down the façade" that Russia operates like a Western country.

Young, who was speaking at Reading Festival, said: "The whole Pussy Riot thing has fascinated the West – unfortunately, it seems, more than it's fascinating a lot of Russia. I've spoken to a lot of different people and had a lot of different opinions. A lot of people seemed really angry about it, and a lot of people seemed apathetic about it."

He added:

I hope it's because they're not getting the whole picture. I think the reason it's resonated, aside from the fact they're young girls in a band, is because it pulls down the façade that Russia's had for the last 10, 15, 20 years when everyone thought they're essentially operating as a Western country, and that's not the case.

Young also spoke about the forthcoming release of the band's second studio album, 'The Vaccines Come Of Age', which will be available from September 3. When asked if he was nervous about how the LP would be received, he said: "I don't really feel that nervous. I just feel really excited. I feel like we've made a better record. We've made a record of songs we really like and we've trusted our gut instinct with. That's what we did on the first record – I think we're all really excited for people to hear it."
