The Thanet gig is one of a series of intimate shows in partnership with the UK’s independent record stores.

In April, the band will return to arenas for the first leg of their Give Me The Future tour before heading out to America in May and June.

The Margate gig will include lead singer Dan Smith performing a stripped back version of the new single Shut Off The Lights.

Dan Smith said: "Shut Off The Lights is about being pulled out of your future-fearing anxieties by the person you’re lying next to.

"It’s about intimacy and physical connection, rejecting our worries about life and the future for a minute, and unplugging from it all to really be present.

"It’s a fun, real, human moment in the middle of this big album. But also, it’s a song that nods back to Paul Simon’s Graceland and a load of music we love. It made us want to dance around the studio and is ridiculously fun to play live."

Tickets are now on sale to the gig, click here for more info.

The band last played the venue in 2019, when they rounded off their tour there.
