Hard-Fi have followed on from their surprise show at Glastonbury Festival with the announcement of a number of low-key lives shows.

The Staines band will play five dates in July at small venues and promise to premiere songs from their new album Once Upon a Time in the West, due out on September 3rd.

Beginning at the Joiners club in Southampton on July 25th, the band will then call at London's Dublin Castle on July 26th and Stoke Sugarmill on July 27th.

The dates will conclude with a show at the Manchester Roadhouse on July 29th and a final gig at Edinburgh Cabaret Voltaire on July 30th.

The shows promise to be "extra special" and are being dubbed "super low-key secret gigs".

To get tickets to the shows fans must register on a special website which will be available from the band's site in the next couple of days.

Hard-Fi have achieved huge success since releasing their debut album Stars of CCTV in 2005.

The singles Hard to Beat, Cash Machine and Better Do Better all achieved strong sales and the band broke records by playing five sold-out nights at Brixton Academy in 2006.

A few new songs were played live for the first time at Glastonbury, along with the hits form the band's first album.
