Florence + the Machine have a new album coming out in a few weeks, and they’ll be promoting it with a London concert, their only headlining show of 2011.

NME reports the group will perform at Hackney Empire on Oct. 25, a week before their album ‘Ceremonials’ drops, and they will surely be playing a lot of the new material during the show. Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday, Oct. 14.

It feels like Florence + the Machine released their debut album ‘Lungs’ not that long ago, but the record actually came out in July 2009. Much of America didn’t discover the group until their September 2010 performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

‘Ceremonials’ will include the band’s latest singles, ‘What the Water Gave Me‘ and ‘Shake it Out.’ Singer Florence Welch tells NME about the sound of the new record: “It started out being more electronic and then, just the way things turned out, it kind of became a more organic sound. It’s kind of rave-y in parts and then sometimes it sounds like church music.”
