L.S. DUNES, the new emo 'supergroup' featuring My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero, Anthony Green from Circa Survive and members of  Coheed and Cambria and Thursday, have announced their debut UK tour, set to take place in January.

In a statement containing a reference to Britain's fucked economy, the five piece say, "They said it wasn’t a good time to come visit but we say fUK the dollar and fUK the pound – let’s dance! We would never leave our UK Lost Souls alone, so here we come."

The band also teased the possibility of dates elsewhere in Europe, saying, "Mainland Europe – should we visit you also? If so where?"

The quintet will play:

Jan 27: Garage, Glasgow
Jan 28: Electric Ballroom, London
Jan 29: Club Academy, Manchester
Jan 30: O2 Academy 2, Birmingham

The album tracklist is:

1. 2022

"We never knew if we would ever get to play these songs together," Iero admits, "in fact none of us lifelong musicians really knew if we’d ever be able to play music for a live audience ever again."
