The band are yet to confirm any dates in the UK, but it's fair to suggest they will be on their way very soon.

Drummer Matt Helders previously revealed the band would love to embark on summer shows, while teasing when we can expect their seventh studio album.

Asked if the follow-up to 2018's Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino was ready to go, he told the BBC: "Yeah, pretty much, yeah. It was a bit disjointed how we had to do it, and there are bits to finish off, but yeah, it’s all in the works.”

He added: "I think by the time we get everything together it’ll be next year. Hopefully we can get out and tour next summer."
