The band have confirmed they'll return to our shores in 2013 for six shows in three cities...

Kings of Leon have announced a UK arena tour for 2013.

The band will play six shows including two at London's O2 Arena and two at Manchester Arena in June.

Jared from the band recently admitted to Radio X that - despite him currently promoting his side-project Smoke and Jackal with Nick from Mona - Kings of Leon have been working on the follow up to 2010's Come Around Sundown.

"When we get together we're just so excited about the new stuff that we end up playing that and we'll jam on songs for literally hours," the bassist told Radio X's Gordon Smart.

"But it's all coming together and so we have a couple of shows to play and then we're going to get in the studio. We built own studio in Nashville so we're going to do it there - we're in the baby stages of making the record."

Kings of Leon will return in 2013 after a two year hiatus to play the six arena shows over here as part of a full European Tour.

The UK dates are:

Wednesday June 12 - London O2 Arena

Thursday June 13 - London O2 Arena

Monday June 24- Manchester Arena

Tuesday June 25 - Manchester Arena

Tuesday July 9 - Birmingham LG Arena

Wednesday July 10 - Birmingham LG Arena
