Ra Ra Riot have announced the details of their first UK tour in May after 2 years away from our shores, which quite frankly is far too long. Syracuse, New York's finest are heading out onto the road for a lightning UK visit calling at London's Garage, Manchester and Brighton in three consecutive days.

The tour is conveniently timed as their sophomore album, "The Orchard" is released the day before the first show. Current single 'Boy' was released this week and the band are also set to release single 'Too Dramatic' on the 9th May.
