Australian prog rockers Karnivool have announced that they'll return to the UK and Europe in June for a run of headline and festival dates, which includes an appearance at this year's Download festival and gigs in Mitlon Keynes and Brighton as well as appearances at Midsummer Prog in Holland, Denmark's Copenhall festival andf France's Hellfest.

It marks an upturn in live activity from the Perth quartet whose live dates last year were their first since 2015, and even then the dates had been rescheduled from 2021.

“We were blown away by the insane reception to the much delayed European tour dates in early 2023," says vocalist Ian Kenny. "When we were offered with the opportunity to come back we jumped at it. See you back out there people…"

Karnivool play a series of major headline shows across Australia in May and June 2024 before heading to the UK and Europe.

Karnivool released their last studio album, the acclaimed Asymettry, back in 2013. They released a standalone single, All It Takes, in 2021.
