Last month, the band announced that they will release their new album – Anna – on February 4 which will be preceded by new single Lose Control on January 28, both released through V2.

It has been two years since their last album Falcon, which charted at number six and followed the bands number four debut album St Jude.

The band recorded and produced the new album in Manchester at 80 Hertz Studios with producer Joe Cross (Hurts) and previewed tracks from it at their sold out homecoming show at the 17,000 capacity Manchester Arena last week.

The band made its Blackpool debut at the Empress Ballroom on March 12, 2010.
