The actress will be playing intimate venues with her band The Licks…

JULIETTE AND THE LICKS will tour the UK next month.

The band, fronted by ’Natural Born Killers’ actress Juliette Lewis, are set to release an EP ‘…Like A Bolt Of Lightning’ on March 28 ahead of their album ‘You’re Speaking My Language’ on May 16.

They gear up for the release with a string of dates in April plus a London show on March 26.

Lewis said: “For this album, and the direction we’ve been moving in rhythmically and vocally, we are listening to everything from Talking Heads, Patti Smith to The Pretenders. It’s going to be interesting! In the last two years we’ve become a solid songwriting machine. We’re unstoppable.”

The dates are:

London Garage (March 26)

Nottingham Rock City (April 11)

Manchester Academy 3 (12)

Glasgow King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut (14)
