Seemingly on the path to world domination in the UK and about to make their first assault on the US by taking part in the Vans Warped Tour (see here for details), While She Sleeps are dialling things back a bit to play some very special, small, intimate UK club shows before they embark on a Summer in the US on taking part in The Warped Tour.
The "Reunite" club tour will see the band play some of their smallest shows for a few years, allowing fans the chance to get really up close and personal with the action. The tour begins on April 22nd at London's Borderline and takes in a total of eight shows, finishing up in Preston's 53 degrees venue on the 4th of May.
Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 6th of February 2013. Full tour dates follow below:

Here's what the band themselves had to say on the matter:
We love the excitement and connection you get from a small show. The London date hopefully will be really in your face, sweaty & chaotic. After doing the Electric Ballroom, we want to go back to how it used to be. Small shows and the excitement of places we have never been before.
We’re really stoked to be hitting these towns. Playing big venues is always amazing but there’s something we all miss from the small & intimate gigs. There is a sense of community and more energy. We want them to be nuts, no rules, just a local show. I think it’s really important to support the scene. We grew up playing anywhere we could, no matter what size or quality the venue; hopefully it will be a good chance for the local crowd to have some attention on their town & encourage people to play there.
After being away for a massive chunk of the year it is going to be great to get back to the UK and play, combined with the fact that we are playing Venues that we have never played before and towns we have never been to . We will have some new material out very soon so keep your ears to the ground ,
We are very exited to have announced this run if shows. Get your tickets and help us cause havoc across England !
