The Cribs have announced a UK tour for May.

The Wakefield trio, who are currently putting the finishing touches to their as yet untitled fifth studio album, will play six shows across the country.

These begin at Nottingham Rock City on May 7 and run until May 13, when the band will headline Eastbourne’s Winter Gardens venue.
