Wu Lyf are set to play a secret hometown show tomorrow (June 3).

Fans are being invited to insert their email at Murkage.net to register their interest in the 'Lyf x Murkage' show, which, according to a post on Manchester promoters Now Wave's Facebook wall, will take place at a rooftop location in the city.

It'll be the band's first UK gig since their March tour, which saw frontman Ellery Roberts tease as their last gigs ever, telling the crowd at the final date at London's Heaven: "Goodbye forever".

Earlier this week, the singer took to the band's Facebook page to clear up Twitter rumours he had been injured in an unspecified accident and was in a "critical condition". He wrote: "2012 is a weird fucking place, some goon got a fake WULYF twitter account, been twating out silly shit for a while, but now they taken their lame game to a whole 'nother level...."

The post continued: "Thank you to all the true friends message of concern but I, Ellery James Roberts aint been in no accident to speak of, I'm alive and well sat on my couch trying to figure what the fuck is up with the mentality of lonesome creeps on the internet. Concerns of the family eh?"

The band, who released their debut album 'Go Tell Fire To The Mountain' last year, said in January they had already been working on a "bunch of new songs" for their second album.
