Previously unreleased tracks and 6 Music session to feature on the single release of My Heart Skips A Beat

Toy have announced that they will be setting out to serate ears nationwide on a UK tour.

Having sold out London's Heaven last year, they'll be filling the decidedly more cavernous setting of the O2 in support of, erm, The Vaccines, in May, following a spot at the Scala for the NME Awards Show next month - here are the dates in full:

Tue 12 - Scala, London

Wed 1 - Winter Gardens, Margate
Thu 2 - The O2, London
Sat 4 - Sands Centre, Carlisle
Sun 5 - Millennium Square, Leeds
Mon 6 - Cymru Arena, Llandudno

They've also announced that the next single to come off last year's self-titled debut LP will be 'My Heart Skips A Beat', which will feature a pair of previously unreleased cuts, 'She’s Over My Head' and 'Layered Electronics', as well as a BBC 6 Music session version of album closer 'Kopter' recorded for Lauren Laverne. The single will be released on 12" vinyl and download via Heavenly on March 12.
