Following the announcement of his first Brixton Academy performance in October, Sheffield-born rock 'n' roller Richard Hawley has announced his full UK autumn tour.

He is also set to play a sold out gig at London HMV Forum on June 8th, not to mention headlining Sunday at the No Direction Home Festival near Sheffield alongside Andrew Bird, Zulu Winter and The Low Anthem as well as an appearance at Suffolk's Latitude Festival with Rufus Wainwright, The Horrors and Elbow.

After the critical acclaim of his seventh album, 'Standing At The Sky's Edge', it has reached Richard's highest ever chart entry at number three in the UK charts. It received a great reception from across the board, branded a 'masterpiece' by The Guardian and The Sun and a 'beautiful storm of brimstone' by NME.

His next single is to be released in July.
