The Blackout have announced a headline tour this Autumn in support of their new album Stop The Party, taking in a stop in Dublin's Academy on Sunday 3rd November.

Originally formed in South Wales in 2003, The Blackout have gone on to shift 56,000 copies of their three full-length albums, sold-out tours across the country and have shared stage space with everyone from My Chemical Romance to Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, All Time Low and Lostprophets. Their followers - including the dedicated fan club the Riot Squad - have grown year on year, seeing The Blackout's online presence now reaching to well over 100,000 people and racking up over one million video plays.

Speaking of the tour, lead singer Gavin Butler was quoted as saying: "We can't wait o get back out. It feels like we haven't played in forever. We've all gone a bit mad with cabin fever so expect an explosive show, it's gonna be the last party tour to celebrate the end of Start the Party. Bring your dancing shoes and party heads"

Tickets for the show will go on sale from 9am Sunday 3rd November, priced at a modest €19.
