They are set to continue their push for world domination by returning to Northern Ireland and headlining the first day of the resurrected Tennent's Vital Festival in Bangor's Ward Park on August 23, according to Hot Press.
They will also appear at the massive Oxegen Festival while over on the auld sod before they return to the U.S. in the autumn for a 31-city tour. And in between all that, there's the small matter of a headline date at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin next month.
Frontman Danny O'Donoghue is delighted to be heading up North, having enjoyed success there in the past.
“Our two shows at the Odyssey were mind blowing so it’s fantastic to get the chance to come back to Northern Ireland," he tells Hot Press.
"We love playing live, it’s such an incredible buzz to experience that connection with your audience. Headlining such a major outdoor festival will be really special.”
Joining the hard-working lads for Tennent's Vital at Bangor will be local heroes Two Door Cinema Club, who are also enjoying international acclaim at present.
If your travel plans take you to Ireland this summer and you can’t wait for their return to the U.S., tickets for Tennent’s Vital go on general sale from 9 a.m. on Friday, June 17 via Ticketmaster. Tickets are priced at £34.50.
