Plus there are new live dates from hip hop prodigy Joey Bada$$, ramshackle indie rockers The Cribs, dial-it-up-to-eleven rock legends Motörhead, folk-pop types City and Colour and the Kiss FM Haunted House Party, which hosts Rita Ora and other chart-friendly pop acts. They're all going on sale on Friday morning so set your alarm and get clicking – and if they don’t float your boat, there’s plenty more on our weekly Just announced page.
Alexandra Palace, October 16
The four-strong Hackney outfit release new album ‘We the Generation’ in September, which gives their all-out, full-band, brass-heavy live incarnation just enough to time to master another clutch of drum 'n' bass anthems before this huge show at Ally Pally. This will go off.
Roundhouse, November 16
Barely out of his teens, rap prodigy Joey Bada$$ already has five acclaimed mix tapes and studio album to his name and a huge international following. Expect tell-it-like-it-is bars and beats that nod to hip hop's jazzier past.
Roundhouse, October 28
Yorkshire's spirited, scuzzy garage rockers released their sixth album ‘For All My Sisters’ earlier this year. A decade on from their debut, they still know how to pull out a big, catchy riff or an arena-ready chorus when they want to.
Wembley Arena, October 29
Spooky times in Hammersmith as pop-loving radio station Kiss FM crams a load of contemporary chart-raiders into the Apollo. R&B pop starlet Rita Ora tops the bill, with hitmakers such as Jess Glynne and Jason Derulo already announced, and more still to come.
Hammersmith Apollo, January 29, 2016
Lemmy and co still rock faster, heavier and at more thrillingly deafening volume than most bands half their age. Expect to hear gold-plated classics 'Killed by Death' and 'Ace of Spades' alongside new material.
Troxy, February 26 and 27, 2016
Formerly the lead guitarist in Canadian screamo kings Alexisonfire, nowadays Dallas Green (city, colour – get it?) makes big-hearted, clear-voiced folk-pop that's won three Junos. Three whats? They're Canadian Grammys, obviously.
