The View have announced their new album, Exorcism Of Youth, alongside a pair of UK shows this May.

Kyle Falconer and co's new record will mark their first album in eight years and their first new music since their reunion in 2022.

Exorcism Of Youth, which is set for release 9th June 2023, is available to pre-order on limited vinyl, CD and cassette.

With it comes the Scottish band's plan to play two intimate UK dates in May at Manchester's Deaf Institute and London's Oslo.

Tickets go on pre-sale this Wednesday 22nd February from 9am GMT and tickets go on general sale this Friday 24th February 24 at 9am GMT from Ticketmaster.

The first taste of the band's new music comes in the form of Feels Like and you can listen to the official audio of the track below:

Speaking about the track, frontman Falconer said: "Even though under the surface it’s about somewhere everyone’s been in their life before: regret of losing someone amazing due to your inner demons and seeing them moving on with their life, when you’re stuck in a ‘nightmare not a dream,’".

He added: "When I first sat down to write it I had Holden Caulfield from [J. D. Salinger novel] Catcher in the Rye in mind. It’s playing out in his mind and it’s his own paranoia destroying him from the inside out when in reality she’s the perfect woman."
