Scouting For Girls have announced a UK wide tour, including a gig at The Ritz, Manchester, in support of the 10th anniversary of their million selling self-titled debut album.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Scouting For Girls, the Brit Award and Ivor Novello nominated band is releasing an extended deluxe version.  The re-released album will be available from 19 May.

The deluxe version sees Scouting For Girls making 14 additional tracks available including live tracks and unreleased demos.  The album will be available as a double-CD release, stream and download.  The original album will also be available on vinyl for the first time and as a limited edition cassette through their official store.

Speaking about reaching the tenth anniversary of the album, Scouting For Girls commented, “Here we are ten years on, and thanks to this album, our friendship and our fans we’re still getting away with it, still without proper jobs. I have nothing but affection for these eleven songs and it’s been lovely to revisit them for this special anniversary edition.”
