Scissor Sisters announce two London dates

Scissors Sisters are set to visit London to play two dates at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in May, just under two weeks before the release of their fourth studio album.

The 2,000 capacity venue in west London will host the quintet on Wednesday, May 16th and Thursday, May 17th, with tickets going on general sale this Friday.

Their new album, Magic Hour is due to be released on Monday, May 28th with the lead single, Only the Horses, preceding it on Sunday, May 20th.

On the record, Scissor Sisters collaborate with a number of artists, including Calvin Harris, Phrarrell Williams, Diplo and Azealia Banks.

The singer, Jack Shears, has discussed the album, describing it as a "sweet joyful mélange of beat-driven future-pop. It style-hops all over the place unabashedly".

Since the band's self-titled debut in 2004, they have sold 4.5 million records. That and the second record Ta-Dah, released in 2006, both reached number one in the UK album charts.
