Not only that, but the band have confirmed news of a new album: We currently find ourselves in the UK finishing the new album so it feels only appropriate to announce our first UK dates of 2014 from here," says Daniel Kessler. "We're pleased to say that we'll be headlining this year's NME Awards Tour. We had a great time playing the Awards Tour in 2003 and we're very much looking forward to our return. It should be a lot of fun. The UK crowds are among the best!"
