It’ll mark their first headline dates in the UK since 2013, which was in support of their most recent studio album, Mosquito.
Since then they’ve performed at the likes of All Points East Festival but haven’t released any new music.
Lead singer Karen O told NME in 2020: “It feels like time to have something new out there. But that’s yet to happen, so we’ll see how this year goes.”
It looks like the band have confirmed new music in their announcement, and fans can also expect their greatest hits including “Heads Will Roll”, “Maps” and “Gold Lion”.
