Ten years to the day after the best-selling band split up they have announced plans to reform and celebrate their music with a tour of theatres in the UK and USA.

The group - whose first album 'I Should Coco' was the best selling debut for their label Parlophone since the Beatles' 'Please Please Me' - declared their comeback on Friday night (September 6) in a suitably bold manner, taking to the stage unannounced at Glastonbury Pilton Party perform a greatest hits set.

They will play at Barrowlands Ballroom on February 20 next year - the only Scottish date on the tour.

Drummer Danny Goffey said: "Everything aligned for us to make this happen for 2020. It was the first time that we collectively felt the buzz to get back in a room together and play the songs. We’re extremely excited to get out there and bring a bit of Supergrass joy to all our fans... and their extended families."

To accompany the tour, Supergrass will also be releasing a best-of package 'Supergrass: The Strange Ones 1994 - 2008'.

This comprehensive box set, marking the 25th anniversary of 'I Should Coco', is a celebration of Supergrass’ career and is released on BMG on January 24.

It contains their 6 original albums on picture disc LP and CD, bonus CDs of unreleased live material, B-sides, remixes, rarities, studio out-takes, demos, acoustic versions, oddities, new mixes, a deluxe book, posters and button badges.
