REM will play songs from their new album for the first time at five concerts in Dublin this summer.

The American stalwarts have announced a string of dates at the city’s Olympia Theatre, where they will showcase material from their upcoming 14th studio album – even though they only plan to actually record the new LP over the coming months.

REM play the Olympia on June 30th and July 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th.
