And the band will release a new single beforehand...

BLUR have announced details of a tour of the UK.

The band follow up their Carling Weekend headline shows with a jaunt round the country, calling at smaller venues than the band would normally play.

The shows are the band’s first

regional UK dates since the Singles Night Tour of December 1999. They did play five nights at the London Astoria in May to launch their new album ‘Think Tank’.

A new single, ‘Good Song’, will be released prior to the dates on October 6. It’s the third track to be lifted from ‘Think Tank’ after ‘Out Of Time’ and ‘Crazy Beat”s earlier chart success.

The dates are at:

Glasgow Barrowlands (November 21)

Liverpool Royal Court (24)

Wolverhampton Civic Hall (25)

Manchester Apollo (28)

London Brixton Academy (December 2/3)

Dublin Olympia (7/8)

Brighton Centre (11)

Bournemouth BIC (12)
