Bristol trip-hip pioneers Portishead have announced a European tour this summer.

As yet, no UK dates have been announced, but the trio - Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley - will perform summer shows in France, Spain and Italy.

The band, who haven't released an album since 2008's 'Third', have previously said that they are working on a follow up record, telling the Quietus last month: "We've been getting together recently and talking about lots of stuff. There's definitely going to be another record, we're just going to get on it as soon as my studio gets working."

Geoff Barrow recently told that he was working on an album inspired by Judge Dredd comics.

Dates for Portishead's european tour are as follows:

Poble Espanyol, Barcelona, Spain (June 22 and 23)
Theatre Antique de Vienne, Vienne, France (25)
Castello Scaligero, Verona, Italy (26)
Ippodromo delle Capannelle, Rome, Italy (27)
