The View's homecoming show

THE View will play a homecoming gig in Dundee at the end of November.

The boys will play Fat Sam's, where they were first discovered by a touring Pete Doherty.

News of the gig came as the band announced details of a 35-date UK tour, plus a new single.

The track 5Rebeccas will be released on October 27, and will be the first single from the band's new album.

The tour will see the band playing small venues, kicking-off at Dunfermline Velocity on October 16. The other Scottish dates are Raigmore, Inverness, on October 17, The Loft, Forres, October 18, and Edinburgh's Cabaret Voltaire on October 19.

They'll also play King Tut's in Glasgow on November 12, Lemon Tree, Aberdeen on November 27, and the Ocean, Kirkcaldy on November 29, before the finale at Fat Sams in Dundee on the 30th.

They are making a limited pink vinyl seven-inch available when visitors to their website pre-order tickets, which go on sale at 9am on Friday.
