(Radio.com) The English Beat have announced that they will be joining Howard Jones, Men Without Hats, Paul Young, Modern English, and Katrina of Katrina and the Waves (with Annabella of Bow Wow Wow filling in for Paul Young on a handful of dates) for the Retro Futura Tour.

Originally breaking up in the late 80s, frontman Dave Wakeling formed General Public who continued their mainstream takeover with massive international singles like "Tenderness", "Never You Done That", "Hot You're Cool" and a cover of Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There."

Simultaneously, English Beat is working on their first album of new material in over three decades, titled Here We Go Love, scheduled for release later this year. See the tour dates here.
