The Virginmarys have announced a UK headline tour.

The dates have been scheduled in support of the band’s latest studio album entitled Divides, which is set for release on May 6 via Spinefarm Records.

Vocalist and guitarist Ally Dickaty says: “This is an incredibly special tour for us. It’s going to be so great to get back in front of our home fans again – and really important to us to play some of the towns we’ve been wanting to come back to for so long. Our fans always do us proud, they are incredible.”

Among the dates is an appearance at the TeamRock-sponsored Stone Free festival, which runs from June 18-19 at London’s O2.

The Virginmarys previously released the tracks For You My Love, Into Dust and Motherless Land.
