Scottish band Glasvegas will play Whelan's this December.

The Glasgow quartet released their self-titled debut last Friday, and it's already being hailed as one of the best of 2008, with many speaking of the band in revered tones usually reserved for rock royalty.

They'll play Whelan's on December 14th - tickets are €15 and on sale this Wednesday from usual outlets.

[UPDATE: They'll also play Belfast's Spring & Airbrake on December 15th. Tickets £10.]
