    After making a surprise appearance at Glastonbury’s Pilton Party over the weekend, Supergrass have confirmed their full reunion plans for next year.

    Most anticipated of all is the Britpop favorites’ reunion tour, which mark their return to the road after nearly a decade.  The 13-date trek will focus largely on the UK and Europe, with only two US shows on the docket: April 1st at Los Angeles’ Wiltern and April 9th at New York’s Brooklyn Steel.

    Tickets go on sale September 13th at 9:00 a.m. local time; considering how quickly their undersell tonight at Oslo’s Hackney sold out, we’d expect tickets to go fast. Regardless, you can get tickets here.

Dubbed Supergrass: The Strange Ones 1994-2008, the collection comprises all six of their LPs both on CD and stunning picture discs featuring each album’s cover artwork. To recap, the band’s records include 1995’s I Should Coco plus In It for the Money (1997), Supergrass (1999), Life on Other Planets (2002), Road to Rouen (2005), and Diamond Hoo Ha (2008).
