100 Monkeys – featuring Twilight star Jackson Rathbone – are finally crossing the pond this winter!

After finishing a summer tour in the US and Canada to promote their newest album, Liquid Zoo, which comes out June 28 (distributed by Warrior/Universal), they will be heading eastward to play several show in Europe.

The tour kicks off on November 28 in Sweden and continues into Denmark, working its way through Germany, France, and the Netherlands before touching down in the UK for their first ever shows!

Tickets for 100 Monkey’s UK tour go on sale at 9am on Wednesday, June 1, 2011.

The full UK tour dates are (all December 2011):

12 – Manchester Academy 3
14 – Birmingham Institute, The Temple
15 – London Islington Academy

100 Monkeys are known States-side for their raucous theatrical live-sets where they switch instruments and vocalists nearly every other song.

This quintet of multi-instrumentalists is comprised of multi-faceted artists, actors, and producers including Jackson Rathbone, Ben Graupner (Trapped in the 5150, Devolved), Jerad Anderson (Wayne/Lauren Film Company), Lawrence Abrams (of the great Willie Bobo, Bob Hope U.S.O. tour, and The Artist Consortium) and Ben Johnson (of the Stevedores and music producer of Spencer Bell’s Brain).
