Vampire Weekend have announced details of a UK arena tour to take place in November.

The band, who released their third studio album 'Modern Vampires Of The City' earlier this year, will play five dates in total on the tour. Starting in Birmingham on November 12, Vampire Weekend will play shows in London, Glasgow and Leeds before ending in Manchester on November 17. Noah and The Whale will support on all dates.

Vampire Weekend recently performed on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2013, returning later in the evening to join Mumford and Sons during their headline slot. Lining up alongside The Vaccines, First Aid Kit and The Staves the group played a cover of Joe Cocker's arrangement of The Beatles' 'With A Little Help From My Friends', during which the Pyramid Stage Phoenix came alive and produced plumes of flame. They support Mumford & Sons at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park tomorrow (July 6).

Vampire Weekend will play:

Birmingham NIA (November 12)
London The 02 (13)
Glasgow The Hydro (15)
Leeds First Direct Arena (16)
Manchester Arena (17)
