The Gaslight Anthem have announced a UK tour for March 2013.

The New Jersey rockers will play nine dates on the stretch kicking off on March 21 at the O2 Academy, Bristol, before heading up to Leeds, Glasgow and Manchester and finishing up at London's Troxy.

The Gaslight Anthem released their fourth studio album, Handwritten, in July of this year. In August, the band told NME in a video interview that putting out the record - which was their first LP release on major label Mercury - had been "the most pressure in our career we've ever been under", although it became a success after entering the Official UK Album Chart at Number Two.

Last month, the band covered Foo Fighters' track "Everlong" for BBC radio 1's Live Lounge They also revealed that they would record their own rendition of Bon Iver's track "Skinny Love" on a special 10-inch red vinyl release.

The limited edition three-track all-acoustic single will comprise the never-before-heard songs 'Hold You Up' and 'Misery', as well as 'Skinny Love', and will be put out on November 24 as a special Black Friday release.
