(Prog) Runrig have announced UK tour to coincide with the release of their 14th and final studio album. The Scottish Celtic rock outfit issue 11-track effort The Story on January 29 and hit the road in February for a 16-date trek across the UK, starting in Aberdeen on February 10.

After celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2013, the band decided to record one final album. Bassist Rory McDonald says: "This is the band's last studio recording, a hugely significant milestone for us all and one that we really want to celebrate."

Producer and multi-instrumentalist Brian Hurren adds: "One of the highlights of the album was being able to go to Prague to record the 32-piece Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. It was an incredible experience and it really helped to bring out the emotion in the songs."

Percussionist Calum MacDonald says: "There are many stories on the album but none more so than that of the band itself. It's fair to say that a number of the songs have a definite reflective quality." See the dates here.
