Dublin and Belfast are both in for visits.
One of the most distinctive UK outfits of the past 15 years, British Sea Power, kick off an extensive bout of gigging with February visits to Whelan's, Dublin (6) and the Limelight, Belfast (7). Tickets go on sale on Friday November 3.
Based in London-On-Sea, AKA Brighton, they'll be giving a belated plug to Let The Dancers Inherit The Party, their crowd-funded album, which just missed out on a top 20 UK berth in March.
If you've never caught them live before, you're in for a left of centre treat.
