The She Moves in Her Own Way singers shot to fame with their 2006 debut.

The album included the BRIT Award nominated ‘You Don’t Love Me’ and the band’s top five single ‘Naive’.

Talking about the tour Luke Pritchard said “After this long hibernation we are so excited to finally announce a tour in 2022 to celebrate 15 years of our first record ‘inside in/inside out’.

"We wanted to play all the songs from the album along with some fan favourites spanning our entire career as a thank you to our fans for all the love that’s kept the album alive, growing and finding new ears since we put it out in the noughties.

"We are so excited to get playing again and can't wait for a bit of a nostalgia trip! Get your tickets and come party with us!”Tickets are on sale now.
