Busted have announced a 21-date UK tour for 2017 in support of 'Night Driver'

Busted are heading out on tour in support of their forthcoming LP 'Night Driver'.

The reunited pop rock trio - comprised of Charlie Simpson, Matt Willis and James Bourne - will perform 21 shows across the UK and Ireland including a show at London's Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on February 3, 2017.

The string of dates follows their highly-successful 'Pigs Can Fly' arena tour which took place in May.

It comes hot off the release of their new single 'On What You're On', which debuted a new electronic sound for the group.

'Night Driver' is released on November 11 and the boys teased that it will be unlike their previous material because they feel the old songs "belong to that time".

Guitarist James said: "The last thing we wanted to do was try to recreate what we used to have.

"It belongs to that time. All real artists evolve, all real artists try things, it's unnatural not to."

And frontman Charlie - who quit the rock/pop group in 2005 and previously vowed never to return - added that the album is a "reflection" of themselves now.

He said: "On this record, we're older, we've had completely different experiences than what we'd have been talking about ten years ago. It's an authentic reflection of who we are today."

The record is the follow-up to 2003's 'A Present for Everyone'.
