Swedish hardcore crew Refused have announced two new UK dates for later this summer.

The recently-reformed band, who initally broke up back in ’98, have revealed they’re set for a couple of shows in London and Manchester during August. These dates will follow on from the punk group’s homecoming festival appearance in Way Out West at the beginning of that month.

The band posted on Facebook:

“The Queen just had her Jubilee, Download’s happening this weekend and now we’re extremely happy to announce that we will be playing a couple of club shows in the UK in August. London and Manchester be ready. WE ARE NOT FUCKING DEAD.”


The details surrounding the dates are as follows:

12 – London’s HMV Forum
14 – Manchester’s Academy
