Wu Tang Clan are set to release their brand new album, 'A Better Tomorrow', in July.

They will support the release of the record with shows at Manchester O2 Apollo on July 25 and London's O2 Academy Brixton on July 26.

Last month Method Man said that the band were working on a new release to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic debut LP 'Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)' - and then, in an interview with Radio.com, Cappadonna confirmed that "recording has begun" on a new LP.

"I already spoke to the RZA," he said. "We've been texting each other. We're definitely concentrating on more positivity and teachings and trying to put that back into the original recipe for this next Wu-Tang album."

He went on to add: "The recording has begun... It's all being done in the secret Wu-Tang Bat chamber. RZA has all the tracks lined up. There are recordings taking place in New York, LA and perhaps at the Wu mansion in New Jersey."

Wu-Tang Clan released 'Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)' in 1993. Their last studio album, '8 Diagrams', was released in 2007 following a six-year gap after their 2001 LP 'Iron Flag'.

The hip-hop group are set to play this weekend’s Coachella Festival in California as well as this summer's Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona.
