The veteran ska-punk band have announced they will play dates across the  UK next August and September.

Following the release of their eighth studio album Encore last year to critical acclaim, the band comprised of Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Horace Panter, hit the road again. Influential, important and exhilarating live, they are a band embedded in this country's DNA. It is impossible to envisage the musical landscape without them, from the startling, angular Gangsters in 1979 to their swan song, the epoch-making Ghost Town in 1981. They infused ska with punk, homegrown political anxiety with wider issues.

Formed in Coventry in 1977, the trend-starting ska revival band hit the British music scene hard. In the UK their debut single Gangsters shot to number six and every subsequent single was a top 10 hit, including two number one hits - Too Much Too Young and the much loved Ghost Town, which won ‘Single of the Year 1981’ in NME, Melody Maker and Sounds.

Encore was the band’s first new studio album in more than 38 years and was revered by critics and fans alike, cementing their legendary status in the music scene and continuing to inspire the next generation of politically motivated acts.
