Courteeners have announced an 18-date UK tour for February and March 2013, which will be their biggest UK tour yet culminating with a headline show at O2 Academy Brixton on Saturday 16th March.

Last month, the band announced that they will release their new album ‘ANNA’ on 4th February which will be preceded by new single ‘Lose Control’ on 28th January, both released through V2. Zane Lowe last night gave fans the first exclusive listen to ‘Lose Control’ which can be downloaded now from – bit.ly/CourteenersLoseControl.

‘Lose Control’ opens with an addictive hook followed by Liam’s distinctive vocals which then catapult into a huge chorus of drums and melody. It the perfect introduction to the new sound of the band’s third album.

It has been two years since Courteeners last album ‘Falcon’, which charted at #6 and followed the bands #4 debut album ‘St. Jude’. The band recorded and produced the album in Manchester at 80 Hertz Studios with producer Joe Cross (Hurts) and last Friday, performed new tracks from the album at a sold out homecoming show at the 17,000 capacity Manchester Arena.
