Stiff Little Fingers are reigniting their politically charged punk for an extensive tour of the UK stretching from November to the majority of March. 

Hailing from Northern Ireland, Stiff Little Fingers were at the forefront of the initial punk movement, airing off about 'The Troubles, police brutality and terrorism that was rife in Belfast at the time. 

Following John Peel latching onto their hit 'Suspect Device', they were signed up by Rough Trade, with whom they release their rip roaring debut Inflammable Material. After moving to the UK and gaining success with multiple albums, the band eventually broke up in 1983.

After a reformation, various band reshuffles and album releases stretching to their last in 2014, the band are back by popular demand making their way around the UK to inflict their backlog of fiery punk hits.
