Gorgon City have announced a six-date tour in the UK and Ireland

Gorgon City have locked in six UK and Ireland dates to follow their 'Escape' album release on August 10.

Starting at Newcastle's O2 Academy on January 31, the pair will conclude their tour in Bristol after a performance at Printworks London.
