Hard-Fi are back

Hard-Fi have announced their first live show in eight years.

The band will reunite to play the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London on October 1.

It's the original line up too, with Richard Archer, Steve Kemp, Kai Stephens, and Ross Phillips coming together for the live performance.

Their last performance together was in 2014 when they released a greatest hits LP โ€˜Hard-Fi: Best Of 2004-2014โ€™.

Speaking about the news, frontman Richard said: "It's fair to say it's been a while since we've all played together so we're all really excited to be getting on stage again and seeing some of our incredible fans.

"It's a Saturday night so hopefully we can recapture the spirit of those gigs back in the day. We may even throw out one or two new numbers into the mix. The Forum is one the classic venues to play, so it's going to be a special night for everyone."

Hard-Fi formed in 2003 and had hits with 'Hard to Beat', 'Living for the Weekend', and 'Cash Machine'.

'Stars Of CCTV', their 2005 debut album, was nominated for the Mercury Prize.

It didn't reach No1 on the UK Albums Chart until six months later, in January 2006.

However, the band's second album, 'Once Upon a Time in the West', shot straight to No1 in the first week of its release.

Tickets for the standalone show will go on general sale this Friday (April 29th) at 10am here
