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.
