Idlewild will give UK fans their first opportunity to hear new album ‘WARNINGS/PROMISES’ at the end of the month.

The tour is the band’s first in the UK in over two years, since the success of their 2002 album ’The Remote Part’. The band will play tracks from their last four albums as well as their forthcoming release, due out on March 7.

The intimate shows will be acoustic, but the band assure that they will return for a full electric tour in April or May.

The first single to be taken from the album, ‘Love Steals Us From Loneliness’, is released on February 21.

Tour dates are:

Glasgow RAMDA Concert Hall (January 22)

Manchester RNCM (23)

Bristol St Georges (25)

London Shaw Theatre (26)
