The Swedish duo First Aid Kit have revealed a UK tour in October/November with support from fellow sister group The Staves.

Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg will be gearing up for an autumn of different cities, stages and crowds as today they announced a 14 day long tour across the UK.

Speaking about the tour, the Swedish duo said, "we're thrilled to announce our Rebel Heart Tour in the fall. We'll be returning to our beloved UK for our biggest tour there to date. With us on the road we'll have the incredible sister trio The Staves. We've been friends and mutual fans for years and finally we get to tour together. We can't wait to get your rebel hearts beating with us!"

The announcement also comes with news that The Staves will also be joining the folk duo on their Rebel Heart tour.

Speaking about the upcoming support slots, The Staves said, ""We met Johanna and Klara backstage at Glastonbury just before singing together with Mumford & Sons for their finale back in 2013, and since then we’ve met in many different dressing rooms in cities and countries across the world. Now we’ve finally managed to fulfil our dream of touring with another band of SISTERS! Gigging is always great, but when it’s with a band you admire and people you love and folks you can harmonise with, it’s the best. We can’t wait to see you out there on the road.”

Kicking off on 22 October at Belfast's The Telegraph Building, The Staves will also endure the 14 date long tour, which comes to a close on 8 November at Leeds' O2 Academy.

The Rebel Heart tour comes after First Aid Kit released their fourth studio album in January. Find out the full details. Check out when Best Fit were backstage with First Aid Kit.
