The mighty 'A', best known as a band that fires out melodic pop-punk firecrackers, bring the first date of their eight-date UK tour to the UEA, Norwich, on Monday, October 3.

The tour is to promote the release of the Suffolk five-piece's eagerly-awaited fourth album Teen Dance Ordinance which came out in July.

With their last album, Hi-Fi Serious, 'A' finally broke into the mainstream with the help of the crushing top ten hit Nothing and top 20 singles Starbucks and Something's Going On.

Their success opened doors for the band, as not only did they land ever-larger gigs across Europe, America and Japan, they also peppered the world's festival stages, returning to their native UK with a quarter of a million records sold worldwide.

Recorded in Seattle, Teen Dance Ordinance finds 'A' fully realising their potential. The album is the first from a UK band to be produced by Terry Date, whose renowned production skills have been used by the likes of Pantera, Deftones and Soundgarden.
