They hit the road last year for the first time in ages - and they must have liked it...

The group, who confirmed the first two dates of a European tour last month in Denmark (March 16-17), will perform shows in Edinburgh, Manchester and London in April.

The shows are at: Edinburgh Usher Hall (April 1)

Belle & Sebastian performed their largest UK tour to date last June, which included a show at the prestigious London Royal Albert Hall.
