Kasabian is returning to the road for the first time since lead singer and founding member Tom Meighan left the group last year.

The outing will travel the “Club Foot” rockers’ native U.K. beginning this October. For ticket info, visit Kasabian.co.uk.

“We love our band, the music and especially our fans too much to ever stop,” the remaining band members say. “There will be all the classic tunes and something new for the mosh pit to bounce to.”

Kasabian announced last July that Meighan was “stepping down” from the band due to unspecified “personal issues.” A day later, Meighan pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-fiancée.

It’s unclear who will be taking over Meighan’s singing duties for the tour, though NME reports that guitarist Serge Pizzorno, who’s provided both backing and lead vocals and is Kasabian’s main songwriter, is “believed” to be stepping into the role.
