Quite brilliant Danish collective Efterklang have just announced a beautiful bunch of tour dates - including a run of six shows in the UK and Ireland - for next year. Good news for people who like epic, fairly-tale soundscapes, for certain.
Here's where they'll be playing:
20 - Brighton, Concorde 2
21 - London, Shepherd's Bush Empire
22 - Oxford, O2 Academy
23 - Edinburgh, Cabaret Voltaire
24 - Belfast, Black Box
25 - Dublin, Whelan's
27 - Bristol, Metropolis
A fair spread of decent venues. They're also playing the US, some of Scandinavia and other European countries on the tour. Click here for the full run-down of dates and details.

Of Magic Chairs, the band says:
"We are very proud of this record and feel that it introduces a new Efterklang sound. The songs draw inspiration from pop song structures, created and recorded with a live approach and we wanted to display every sound source clearly so that the listener can hear every ingredient of the music."
