The Stranglers are pleased to announce a full UK tour in March 2012 .

The band have been busy in the studio writing and recording their seventeenth studio album which is due for release next year.

First forming in 1974 the band ‘ s straight talking approach gave them the reputation as aggressive and confrontational with their notoriety later embraced by the punk movement of 77.

The tour celebrates the 35th anniversary of the initial release and success of debut single ‘Grip’ and their legendary first album Rattus Norvegicus.

This was followed by such hits as ‘Peaches’, ‘No More Heroes’, ‘5 Minutes’, ‘Duchess’, ‘Something Better Change’, ‘Always the Sun’ and their ultimate classic ‘Golden Brown’.

Since then the band have gone on to become one of the UK’s best loved and most enduring bands – racking up over 24 top 40 singles and 18 top 40 albums.

Hugely influential, the band remain pioneers with their unique sound.
