Irish rockers KEELEY have announced their first ever UK tour for next month.

The quartet, fronted by singer Keeley Moss, released their acclaimed debut album Floating Above Everything Else in June through Dimple Discs and have been undertaking radio promotion duties in the US, where the record's become a favourite of college stations in New York, Chicago, LA and Philadelphia.

Aside from Moss herself, the band features former Microdisney drummer Tom Fenner, bassist Lukey Foxtrot and keyboardist Marty Canavan.

"The prospect of my first extensive UK tour is something I find exhilarating," she says. "Being a consummate music fanatic with a very particular affinity with UK indie culture, touring England and Scotland is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. But that's not even half the reason why this tour means so much to me.

"Being a concept artist, the driving inspiration behind every song I write - murder victim Inga Maria Hauser - is central to my work," she continues. "Undertaking this tour will enable me to connect with Inga's inspiration in new ways, and in particular performing songs about her in three of the places she visited on the ill-fated backpacking trip (London, Bristol and Glasgow) that culminated in her brutal murder in Northern Ireland in 1988 is sure to be a profound and immersive experience, infusing the songs with an even deeper resonance. Furthermore, getting to perform in Manchester, the birthplace of many of my favourite bands, and Leeds, in the heart of West Yorkshire, my single favourite region in the UK, fills me with relish. This is more than a tour - it is the continuation and escalation of a singular sonic odyssey."

Prior to the dates, Keeley has issued the brand new video for the track 'Arrive Alive'...
