Spector and Tribes have been announced as the headliners of the latest War Child fundraiser.

The bands will play at Islington Assembly Hall in London on November 18 as part of the charity's 'Army Of You' showcase, which aims to promote emerging talent. Friendly Fires will also be DJing the event.

Further DJ sets will come on the night from The 2 Bears' Raf Daddy and Orlando Boom, whilst Stevie Neale will play live.

War Child works to protect children who are hit hardest by war and its consequences including street children, child soldiers and children in prison. With projects in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Iraq, Uganda and most recently Syria.

Tribes are currently recording the follow-up to their 2012 debut 'Baby' in Los Angeles' Sound City Studios, where the likes of Nirvana's 'Nevermind' and Arctic Monkeys' 'Suck It And See' were made.

Asked about their plans for his band's second album, singer Johnny Lloyd told NME: "We want to get the new album out early next year (2013). We've been talking with Island (their record label) about when we'll put it out. We started recording 'Baby' in April last year so we've had those songs for a long time. We want to be constantly on the road and the only way we can do that is by constantly putting stuff out. We've been working quite hard on a batch of songs for the new record. I'd like to get it out early next year, but I'm not sure the label will like that."
