Glasvegas have been announced as headliners of the annual Shockwaves NME Awards Tour.

The tour, which usually hits Ireland at the end of January, will see the Scottish band joined by buzz bands Friendly Fires and White Lies.

No Irish dates have yet been announced - but we'll let you know as soon as we have the info.

Glasvegas are also set to play two sold-out dates in Dublin and Belfast next month.

[UPDATE: Florence and the Machine also added to the bill.]
