The Manchester natives will be playing at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin on December 21.
The band last visited Ireland in February 2005 with gigs in Belfast and Dublin along with a Heineken Green Room Session concert in Castlebar.
Having just finished their U.S. tour, plugging latest album Some Cities, the lads should be in top form for Ireland. Tickets on sale now for the December gig.

Some Cities rages with a certain urgency, the sounds of a stolen car ride, charging from the outset with ‘Some Cities’, a thumping, forceful track that impressively kicks off proceedings.
