British reggae band UB40 will tour Australia in November.

While original lead singer, Ali Campbell, left the band in 2008 the remaining founding members have carried on, joined by new lead vocalist (and Ali’s brother) Duncan Campbell.

The rest of the original band includes the other Campbell brother, Robin – who also sings and plays guitar – bassist Earl Falconer, Brian Travers on saxophone and keyboards, drummer Jimmy Brown and Norman Hassan on percussion and vocals.

The band will play a string of national and regional dates reaching into a catalogue that stretches back to their 1980 debut album, Signing Off through to 2013’s Getting Over The Storm.

The band have sold over 100 million records to become one of the most successful British groups of all-time.
