Suede announce October 2013 UK and Irish tour dates

Suede have announced details of an October 2013 UK and Ireland tour.

Following two massive shows last month, the band have added five new dates for later on this year, calling in at Leeds, Glasgow, Dublin, Manchester and Birmingham. They will play tracks from their sixth album Bloodsports, which was released on March 18.

The LP was the band's first in over 10 years and entered the Official UK Albums Chart at Number 10, giving them their first Top 10 hit since 1999's 'Head Music'. Singer Brett Anderson hinted recently that its success could see band continue to record music together.

Initially talking about former guitarist Bernard Butler, he said: "I've learned before, to my eternal regret, that if a creative relationship works you're a fool to throw it away." He then added: "So now Suede's relationships work again, I'd like to think we could make another great record to follow this great record and start a new chapter for the band."

Suede will play:

Leeds O2 Academy (October 26)
Glasgow Barrowlands (27)
Dublin Olympia (27)
Manchester Academy 1 (30)
Birmingham Academy 1 (31)
