The Zutons have announced plans to reunite for a tour marking the fifteenth anniversary of their debut album, ‘Who Killed The Zutons?’

The band split in 2009, but played two one-off shows in 2016 in tribute to the band Viola Beach and Tramp Attack frontman Kristian Ealey. The latter show was the only one to feature the band’s full original line-up and was billed as their “last ever” performance. But two years on, they seem to have warmed to the idea of playing together again.

“We’ve all been off doing our own thing for a little while, and it’s only with hindsight and a bit of space that you see how special something really is”, says frontman Dave McCabe. “It’s easy to take things for granted when you’re younger, but now it’s just amazing to think of those songs still having a place in the world, and for people to come and hear us play them again”.

Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday, and the dates are:

26 Mar: Birmingham, Institute
28 Mar: Glasgow, Barrowland
29 Mar: Manchester, Albert Hall
30 Mar: London, Roundhouse
1 Apr: Bristol, Academy
2 Apr: Nottingham, Rock City
4 Apr: Leeds, Academy
5 Apr: Liverpool, Olympia
