Their third album is out then, too

To provide a diversion from their current low-cal slanging match with Noel Gallagher, Kaiser Chiefs are heading off on tour in October.

The dates are pretty intimate by their standards, and kick off on October 8 with a show, suitably, in Leeds.

The band’s new single, “Never Miss A Beat” comes out a couple of days earlier on October 6. As Gallagher has helpfully pointed out to the press, it’s produced by Mark Ronson. It also features backing vocals from Lily Allen and New Young Pony Club. The Kaisers’ third album, Off With Their Heads, follows on October 13.

Here are those dates, anyway:

8th October – Leeds Academy
13th October – Manchester Academy
15th October – Southampton Guildhall
16th October – Reading Rivermead
17th October – Glasgow Barrowlands
19th October – Leicester De Montford Hall
20th October – London Kentish Town Forum
21st October – London Kentish Town Forum

Tickets go on sale at 9am on August 21. The support acts are Late Of The Pier and a new Leeds band, The Hair.
