The 1975 have announced a 2019 UK and Ireland tour and tickets go on sale at 9am on Fri 21 Sep.
Matty Healy and co will head out on a nine-date run kicking off at Belfast's SSE Arena on January 9, including a stop at London's The O2, before wrapping at Sheffield's FlyDSA Arena on January 25.
The shows will follow the release of the band's much-anticipated third studio album, 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships', on November 30.
Meanwhile, Matty recently revealed he is planning on inviting a "handful" of fans into his studio to preview the two new albums they have on the way.
The 'Somebody Else' hitmaker confessed he was "pretty nervous" about letting them hear their new tunes.
He tweeted: "I'm gonna get a handful of you guys to come to the studio (LA) and listen to some of the record(s) soon. I'm pretty nervous but very excited (sic)"
Following the release of 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships', a second record entitled 'Notes On A Conditional Form' is said to be coming in May 2019.
Speaking about the two albums, he said previously: "We're actually doing two albums. We're doing 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships' and then I think in May next year we're dropping 'Notes On A Conditional Form', which is a different album."
The single 'TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME' was recently released, following the singles 'Give Yourself A Try' and 'Love It If We Made It', which marked their first new music since 2016 LP 'I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It'.
Meanwhile, the singer's famous father Tim Healy previously revealed he has recorded a song with his son.The 66-year-old actor took to Twitter to share the news that he had been in the studio with his offspring to record a track that he had written when Matty was just 11 years old.
Posting a loving picture of himself with the 'Chocolate' hitmaker, Tim - who is best known for starring as Dennis Patterson on the British TV show 'Auf Wiedersehen' - wrote: "Had a brill day recording a song I wrote when Matty was 11 he wanted it on his new album yippee you can hear it in April love you guys xxx"
