Mike Peters and The Alarm announce Viral Black UK Tour for this October.

Following on from the successful release of new album Blood Red and the reaction generated by the May tour and BBC documentary screening of 'Mike & Jules - While We Still Have Time', Mike Peters and The Alarm will return from their massive 48 date summer tour of the USA to perform an 11 date Viral Black UK Tour this October.

With an opening date at Nottingham's Rescue Rooms on October 4th, the Viral Black UK Tour, will then head North for shows at Newcastle's Boiler Shop (5th), Aberdeen Assembly (6th), and Edinburgh Liquid Rooms (7th), before turning south for dates at the Bristol Thekla (11th), Wakefield's Warehouse 23 (12th), Birmingham O2 Academy (13th) and Liverpool O2 Academy (14th).

The tour will culminate with three final shows at Norwich Waterfront (18th), Sheffield O2 Academy (19th), and Oxford O2 Academy (20th).

"The May tour was received so well by all who came, and the demand for more UK shows was obvious", said singer Mike Peters "The new songs from Blood Red were all accepted into the fold and breathed new life into the established songs from across all of the Alarm eras. I'm excited to get out there again on the back of the US tour and show people all across the UK that The Alarm is moving forward at pace, and remains as relevant today as ever. Peace Now."

Tickets for all shows will go on sale at 9.00 AM this Wednesday when links will be posted at
