The Britpop band have also announced a co- headline UK tour in August and September 2020, where they’ll play their debut album in full with The Bluetones, who will play their Expecting To Fly album in full.

Tickets are on sale now via www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

Frontwoman Louise Wener said: "We can’t believe it’s 25 years since SMART was released. On the day it came out we all jumped on the 73 bus to HMV Oxford Street to see the giant window display. Andy and Jon got a bollocking from staff for putting the vinyl at No.1 in the racks - by Saturday it ended up at No.5 - still a totally surreal feeling. We cannot wait to play this record in full and take it out on tour."
