Indie rockers The Kooks have announced a new leg to their biggest ever UK tour, including a date at Blackpool's iconic Empress Ballroom.

The resort date on Thursday, November 30 is the penultimate stop on the six-date arena tour, which also takes in Leeds, Nottingham, Brighton, Cardiff and Wembley.

Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday, with pre-sale on Wednesday at 10am.

Their new single Be Who You Are is out now, followed later this month with the release of their Best Of... So Far album - including fan favourites and classic hits such as She Moves In Her Own Way and Junk of the Heart (Happy).

Lead singer Luke said: "It's been the greatest pleasure to work, travel, fight, hate and love the best and most talented people I've met in my life. It's the greatest job in the world and we don't intend to stop any time soon."

Since the quartet burst onto the scene in 2006 with their debut Inside In/Inside Out, the Brighton-based four-piece have gone from strength to strength, recording three further studio albums.

During the live shows, fans will be given the chance to see performances of classic singles and b-sides, as well as brand new music that the band have been dedicating time to in the studio the past few months, teasing what’s to come in the next year.
