The Fratellis have announced plans for a seven-date tour of the UK, set to take place in April of next year.

The tour kicks off at London Electric Ballroom on April 11, 2013, before visiting Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Newcastle and Liverpool, finishing up at Glasgow Barrowland on April 18. Tickets go on general sale December 6 at 9am (GMT).

The band announced they had reunited earlier this autumn, after going on hiatus in 2010. They are currently recording their comeback album, which will follow 2006’s ‘Costello Music’ and 2008’s ‘Here We Stand’.


Of the album, which is due out next year, frontman Jon Fratelli says: “We’ve not changed in any way that is going to challenge people too much and you can’t really expect people to buy into what you are doing and then completely change it. You do enough to keep them motivated and interested.”

London Electric Ballroom (April 11, 2013)
Birmingham HMV Institute (12)
Manchester HMV Ritz (13)
Bristol O2 Academy (15)
Newcastle O2 Academy (16)
