They will play across Ireland and the UK at the start of next year.

They will play the 3Arena, Dublin on 25th February as well as the SSE Arena in Belfast on 27th February, to wrap up their tour.

Fans who pre-order their upcoming album, The Forest Is The Path from Snow Patrol’s store will get access to tour pre-sale.

Tickets go on pre-sale on Wednesday 5th June at 10am and general sale on Friday 7th June at 10am.

The lads will play eight gigs over the coarse of the month, with the tour starting in London, before heading to Birmingham, Cardiff, Hull and Manchester. They will play their two final gigs in Dublin and then their homecoming gig in Belfast.

Speaking about the new album, lead singer, Gary Lightbody, said: “I haven’t been in a relationship for a very long time, 10 years or more, so love from a distance to me meant the way a relationship sits in your memory from a distance of, say, 10 years. That’s not something I’d previously thought about as away to write about love.

“So it’s like, when you’re in love, you’re standing in the lobby of the Empire State Building. When you’ve broken up with that person, you’re out in the street. You can still see the building, but you’re not in there anymore. And when it’s 10 years later, now you’re standing in Brooklyn looking at the Manhattan skyline.”

He described their first single, The Beginning as the song that is “a summing up of this album”.

“It’s a way of looking at various mistakes, any pain I may have caused, from a place where nothing is hurting anymore, except the memory when you pull it back into your mind. The memory itself is full of hurt but everything around it isn’t. You’re holding in your hand this ball of fire, but now you’ve got gloves on.”

General sale takes place on June 7th from Ticketmaster.
