The tour, which was announced on the band's Twitter page, will end with two dates at London's Eventim Apollo on 15 and 16 October.

The band's most recent release, Wildheart, is currently number 18 in the official UK singles chart, having peaked at number three.

Their debut single Can We Dance went to number two when it came out in October.
