Nineties Britpop act Dodgy will hit the road for Metro newspaper/ME Music on a Barfly club tour of the U.K., following a return to the live scene in March that included several festival appearances over the summer.

The tour will feature Dodgy as headline act with support from ENL, winner of a battle of the bands competition run by Metro. Dates begin Nov. 27 at the Birmingham Barfly and conclude Dec. 7 at Leicester’s Musician venue.

Dodgy is currently working on new material for a forthcoming EP, available exclusively during the Metro tour. At the peak of its fame, the U.K. outfit achieved eight top 40 singles, including the No. 4 hit of 1996, "Good Enough" (A&M Records).

ME Music is an online music and social networking site that showcases unsigned acts. It is run by amazingtunes.com in conjunction with Metro, a free daily newspaper published in 16 U.K. cities and online.

Last month, Metro International announced that U.K. singer-songwriter James Blunt is to guest edit the global section of the free newspaper on Nov. 17 (Billboard.biz, Oct. 21). The Swedish-owned company, which is separate from the U.K. Metro, publishes the title in more than 150 cities.
