While currently out on the road in the U.S. on the Voyeurist Tour with Underøath, Spiritbox clearly aren't forgetting their fans across the pond as they've finally – finally! – announced a UK headline date.

After hitting Download Festival on June 12, the band will then travel down to London's O2 Academy Islington the next day where they will be performing their first-ever UK headliner, with tickets going on general sale this Friday (February 25) at 10am.

In other 'first-evers' for the band, last week Spiritbox announced an Eternal Blue graphic novel with Z2 Comics.

"I am in love with this story and artwork," said vocalist Courtney LaPlante. "I cannot wait for you to discover Eva and the world that she has been thrust into. It truly is an extension of my feelings and the state of mind I held while writing our album, Eternal Blue, and the lyrics that resonate with me still. Although we are very different, I can’t help but let a lot of myself seep into Eva’s personality and experiences. I care about her so much. Jim and Amilcar are brilliant and we are so happy to share this with you after keeping it to ourselves for so long."

Download Festival takes place at Donington Park on June 10-12. Get your tickets now.
