A Los Angeles founded synthwave band is embarking on their European tour this summer and has even scheduled a stop in the North East - here's where and when. 

The Midnight will take to the stage at NX Newcastle on July 25 this year as part of their latest tour.

The two founding members, Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Tyler Lyle and Los Angeles–based Danish-born producer, songwriter, and singer Tim McEwan founded the band in Hollywood back in 2012 and have since toured around the US, UK and Europe. 

In a short Facebook post announcing the tour, the band wrote: "Europe and UK! We couldn’t stay away for long. We’re so happy to be coming back this July."

Before touching down in Newcastle the band will even make a few stops in India and Australia before playing their first-ever show in the region after previously frequenting Glasgow, Manchester and London.
