Things had looked bleak for fans following 2010's Ending on A High Note – Farewell Tour.

But goodbye wasn't forever and, following a five-year hiatus, the band have been back in the studio recording material for Cast In Steel which will be released in the autumn.

It's their first new record in six years.

As for the upcoming gigs, Morten said: "I’m definitely looking forward to touring. I think it will be great. We will pace it so that the conditions are there for us, but it will be a full-on a-ha experience.

"We don't need to do the same run through as last time. When people come to see the band, they’ll expect the cornerstone songs, of course, but this time it will be a different pick."

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 5, at 9am and are available via 0844 811 0051 and 0844 826 2826 as well as gigsandtours.com and ticketmaster.co.uk.
