British '€œpost-dubstep'€ duo Mount Kimbie have announced a solo UK tour following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Crooks & Lovers.

The group, who play as a band during their live shows, will spend their summer at festivals across the UK and Europe, including appearances at Field Day and Bestival, before their first ever live shows in America followed by an 11-date UK tour in October.

Of their debut album, which was released earlier this month, Drowned In Sound claimed it to be a contender for album of the year, and NME described it as a "lush collection of soul-stepping miniatures."
