This is happening. As soon as this year's Splendour line-up dropped, the question was - would headliners LCD Soundsystem announce any sideshows? They have.

LCD play Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena on Wednesday July 26 and Sydney’s Hordern Pavillion on Monday July 24. Ticket’s go on sale 11am on Thursday 20 April.

New material has been scarce since the band announced they would get back together late in 2015. They gave us a small taste that festive season with Christmas Will Break Your Heart.

Last week they debuted two new songs in New York with a heartfelt plea to their fans to keep the songs from making their way to the interwebs.

Australian audiences should get a taste of the new material alongside favourites All My Friends, Pow Pow, Sound of Silver and Daft Punk is Playing at My House when they hit Melbourne and Sydney.

Happy Easter.
