The band, founded by John Lydon after he left the Sex Pistols in 1978, will perform at city venue Warehouse 23 on the second date of a UK tour, on May 25.

Famed for their hits Public Image, Death Disco and This Is Not a Love Song, PiL released their 10th studio album, What The World Needs Now..., to enthusiastic reviews last year.

The record, which was self-funded and released on their own label, featured the band’s longest lasting and most stable line-up of frontman Lydon, guitarist Lu Edmonds, drummer Bruce Smith and bass player Scott Firth.
