Blackfield have announced a nine-date UK and European tour which will take place later this year.

The shows will kick off in Paris on May 20 and wrap up with a set in Berlin on May 30.

Aviv Geffen has lined up the shows in support of their latest album Blackfield V which featured Steven Wilson and was released in February via Kscope Records. Wilson will not be part of the tour.

Blackfield V was written and recorded over the space of 18 months in both Israel and England. Joining Wilson and Geffen on the album are drummer Tomer Z and keyboardist Eran Mitelman, while string arrangements are performed by the London Session Orchestra.

Blackfield previously released a lyric video for the track From 44 To 48 and the Lasse Hoile-directed promo for Lonely Soul.
