LITTLE Man Tate will reunite for a major headline gig in their hometown this year.
The Sheffield indie four-piece break their 11-year silence to announce a reunion show at the O2 Academy, Sheffield.
Stalwarts of Sheffield's famously thriving indie scene of the noughties, Little Man Tate rubbed shoulders with the likes of Bromheads Jacket, Milburn, Reverend & The Makers and Arctic Monkeys to put the Steel City back on the musical map.
The gig on Friday, September 18, will be the band's first live appearance since their emotional farewell shows at the very same venue in 2009, where they performed to over 3,000 avid fans.
Looking to recapture that same magic, the original line up of Jon Windle, Edward 'Maz' Marriott, Ben Surtees and Dan Fields will be picking up where they left off.
Speaking about the reunion show, front man Jon said: "We've had offers over the last few years to do something, but it was never the right time due to other things that were going on in our lives. This time it was perfect, we are all in a really good place and just can't wait to do it."
Forming in 2005, the band announced themselves with the infectious first single The Agent.
Self released via the band's own Yellow Van Records label, the track was followed by top 40 hit, What? What You Got?, earmarking Little Man Tate as one of the UK's hottest new prospects and igniting a bidding war amongst multiple record labels.
Signing with V2 Records in 2006, LMT went on to invade the UK Top 40 with their next four singles, including House Party At Boothy's and Sexy In Latin, while their debut album About What You Know climbed to number 27 in the UK Albums Chart in 2007.
In 2008, the band released their second and final album, Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy, before splitting the following year.
Tickets for their reuniuon show go on sale on Friday, April 24, at 10am.
