American Football have announced their first ever UK tour.

The indie rock band, whose hits include “Never Meant” and “I’ll See You When We’re Both Not So Emotional”, will hop across the pond to perform on three dates in May 2015.

On 14 May they will play at London’s Electric Ballroom, followed by the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on 15 May and Manchester’s Gorilla on 16 May.

American Football, from Champaign-Urbana in Illinois, reunited this year after a 14-year hiatus. The band was originally formed in 1997 by Mike Kinsella, Steve Lamos and Steve Holmes.

In March Polyvinyl Records announced a deluxe edition of their album American Football, which was first released in 1999. The album includes 10 additional unheard demos and live recordings.

The band’s tour kicks off on 11 December at the Fillmore in San Francisco and will take them to Los Angeles and Chicago before they arrive in the UK.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday 24 November and can be bought from the band’s official website.
