Chart-topping group Rudimental have announced details of their own, headline UK tour.

In 2012, they had a number one single with Feel The Love and are preparing to release their debut album later this year.

Feel The Love, featuring vocalist John Newman, was 2012's 16th biggest-selling single shifting more than 619,000 copies.
It's nominated for best single at this year's Brit Awards.
Ed Sheeran recently expressed his desire to launch a side project with the group, an idea they're enthusiastic about.
Speaking to Newsbeat, DJ Leon Rolle said: "We love Ed, and we love what he's done. The impact he has when he's on stage is just immense. He's a very talented guy and it'd be a bit of dream to work with him."
"We'd love to work with him and we definitely will," confirmed Amir Amor.
On their debut release, the band said: "We want to bring out a seminal, genre-defining album."
