Stiff Little Fingers announce Up a Gear UK tour

Legendary punks Stiff Little Fingers have announced the details of their 2013 UK tour Up a Gear ahead of the release of their as yet untitled tenth studio album in May 2013.

Fans of the Belfast band should book cheap breaks to Southampton on Thursday, March 7th to catch them at The Brook. They then head to the likes of Brighton, Nuneaton, Sheffield, Newcastle, Leeds, Gloucester and Wolverhampton, before finishing at Cardiff’s Solus on Saturday, March 30th.

Speaking about the forthcoming tour, front man Jake Burns explained that one of the difficulties with being a band for nearly 30 years is to not appear like a "cabaret band", playing all the old songs that fans greet like long lost friends when they themselves are sick of hearing them.

The band formed in Northern Ireland in 1977, during the height of the Troubles and became famous for songs such as Alternative Ulster and Suspect Device.

Burns is the only lasting original member of the band.
