Including an Alexandra Palace show...

Foals have confirmed plans for a short UK tour in February 2014.

Foals have finally embraced their potential as a rock band. The band's third album 'Holy Fire' emerged earlier this year, and found the Oxford group taking on board some classic influences, playing it straight to devastating effect.

Since then, the band's profile has soared. Something of a breakthrough moment, 'Holy Fire' has been followed by spectacular show after spectacular show.

Recently headlining Latitude, the group are set to concentrate on international climes. A few moments ago, though, Foals confirmed their intentions to hit the road in February 2014.

The dates are ambitious, with the nationwide jaunt containing some massive venues. Ending in London, the group intend to headline the capital's historic Alexandra Palace on Valentine's Day.

Tickets go on sale at 9am next Friday (August 30th).

7 Manchester Apollo
9 Glasgow Barrowlands
11 Birmingham O2 Academy
