Daughtry has announced a new UK tour following the release of his fourth full-length studio album Baptized. This is Daughtry's first headline UK dates since 2010 and will see Chris and his band perform four shows culminating at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on Wednesday 26th March. Daughtry is the rock band fronted by Chris Daughtry, finalist from American Idol Season 5 (2005). Behind only Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry is the third-biggest selling American Idol alumnus around the world.

Baptized is the fourth full-length studio album and takes the band in a new musical direction. Motivated by intensely creative writing sessions with the likes of Martin Johnson [Boys Like Girls], Sam Hollander [Gym Class Heroes, Coheed and Cambria] and Claude Kelly [Bruno Mars, Whitney Houston], the singer, songwriter and musician quickly discovered the direction of his latest body of work. "I needed a change," admits Chris. "I started hearing these new sounds over my voice, and it was so inspiring. There wasn't just one style either. It was a completely different vibe all around. I really wanted to pursue that to the fullest. This is probably one of the most inspiring records I've ever done."

You can catch Daughtry live at the following UK venues:
22nd, O2 ABC, Glasgow
23rd, The Ritz, Manchester
24th, The Institute, Birmingham
26th, O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, London
