The Kaiser Chiefs have elected to push the life of their debut album on a little further, announcing a further tour for the Employment collection in April:

"When we announced the (Rock 'N' Roll Riot dates) back in July our message board was full of venom within hours as all the dates sold out immediately," they explained. "So we've decided to play one final run of 'Employment' gigs in April 2006."

So that's going to be May before they even get round to thinking about the follow-up - that's if Ricky Wilson is still ambulatory by the time he's been on the road non-stop for ever:

Glasgow SECC (April 19)
London Alexandra Palace (21)
Plymouth Pavilion (24)
Brighton Convention Centre (25)
Birmingham NIA (26)
Leeds Millennium Square (29)

Support is going to be provided by the Polysics...

... and also Graham Coxon, which seems to be so far the wrong way round we're sure even the Chiefs will be feeling awkward by the third night.
