Archer said: "It's fair to say it's been a while since we've all played together so we're all really excited to be getting on stage again.

"It's a Saturday night so hopefully we can recapture the spirit of those gigs back in the day. We may even throw out one or two new numbers into the mix. The Forum is one the classic venues to play, so it's going to be a special night for everyone."

Two weeks ago, posters appeared on the London Underground, hinting at an announcement.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed the famous camera symbol, which features on the cover art for their 2005 Stars Of CCTV album, and began sharing their snaps on social media.

They went on to release three studio albums in total, following up with Once Upon a Time in the West in 2007 and Killer Sounds in 2011.

The band - who were formed in 2003 in Staines-upon-Thames - unveiled a greatest hits compilation Hard-Fi: Best of 2004 – 2014 - on 27th January 2014 and haven't shared any other official music since then.
