For what some may consider somewhat of a surprise pairing, Brandford Cox's Deerhunter will be joining the Arctic Monkeys for two shows early next winter.

The news comes only a few days after the band announced a string of cancelled and postponed European tour dates due to lead singer Alex Turner contracting laryngitis. The band's Birmingham date will now take place November 20th and the Glasgow show will now be scheduled for November 21st.
