The 'Chasing The Sun' band will play a number of concerts across the country in June and July.

The Wanted's Tom Parker says he "can't wait" for the band to hit the road this summer for a series of concerts across the UK.

The 'Glad You Came' singers wrapped their 'The Code' UK Arena tour earlier this year and have spent a lot of time in the US since then promoting their debut stateside EP 'The Wanted', but are set to play several shows over the course of late June and most of July. 

"Can't wait to get back on the road again in July and see everyone," The Wanted's Tom Parker tweeted last night (28th May). "Going to be epic!! And maybe we'll do coldplay ;) x." 

The 'Lightning' star recently issued a thanks to fans after they helped the band's latest single 'Chasing The Sun' make it to number two on the Vodafone Big Top 40 two weeks ago. 

Tom and bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes are also currently working on their third studio album, the follow-up to 2011's sophomore release 'Battleground'.

The Wanted's UK shows this summer include a performance at Tower Festival in Blackpool on 24th June, playing T in the Park festival in Kinross on 8th July and a show at Ripley Castle in North Yorkshire on 15th July.
