POP duo The Ting Tings are back - bigger and brighter than ever.
The band, which features Lowton-born Katie White, are teaming up with some of the best arts and music courses in the country as part of their Show Me Yours UK tour.
They are on a mission to discover and champion new UK talent from the world of music, art, fashion and film as they are giving students the chance to create fashion items for them to wear, make a music video, mix their tracks and come up with poster and artwork designs.
The work will then be used and showcased by Katie and drummer Jules De Martino at each venue.
The tour starts on November 21 and the duo will be at Sound Control, in Manchester, on November 27.

The Ting Tings have also posted their first track from their new album online.
The clip, which is co-directed by the band, features the duo performing in a skate park before ending with a little samurai action as the singer channels Uma Thurman’s character The Bride from the Quentin Tarantino movie Kill Bill.
The track - Hang It Up - is the band’s first in 13 months following their 2010 comeback single Hands.
The pair have since been recording their long awaited second album in Berlin, London and Spain.
It is scheduled for a UK release on January 16, 2012.
Earlier this year they described the album as having more of a “dark side.”
