They will play Southampton, Guildhall on November 20 and Brighton Dome on November 21.

Spokeswoman Kara McCabe said: “The release of retrospective ‘Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll – The Singles’ is a timely reminder of one of British music’s most essential bodies of work. And the band celebrated its release with some triumphant shows that demonstrated that their inventive, high octane rock ‘n’ roll remains as essential as ever.

“They recently played two special warm-up shows in London and Brighton, which earned 4* reviews from The Times and The Independent, ahead of incendiary festival sets at All Points East and the Neighbourhood Weekender. The sets have been packed with classics – ‘Movin’ On Up’, ‘Loaded’, ‘Rocks’ and ‘Kill All Hippies’ to name just a few.

“Now Primal Scream can confirm details of a full UK and Ireland tour which spans November and December. The dates, listed below, include a London gig at the O2 Forum Kentish Town and culminate with a homecoming show at Glasgow’s Barrowlands.”
