Squeeze have announced they will tour the UK in November and December - and offer fans instant post-gig recordings of each set via a 'pop-up shop'.
Founding members and songwriters Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford will play 22 nights (see below for full listings) and will move from the stage to the pop-up shop each night.
Fans will then be able to buy a recording of that evening's show which will include the first new Squeeze songs for 14 years.
It is not the first time the band has taken control of their own recordings; in 2010, they re-recorded many of their hits to sound as similar as possible to the original masters on an album cheekily called Spot The Difference.

Chris Difford and Norman Lovett have enthralled audiences on their music and comedy tour and can now announce that they are taking the show to the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 for a full month at the iconic Gilded Balloon venue.
The show entitled "It's All About Me" tells the story of Chris's journey through his musical life from the 50p advert that brought him and Glenn together to form Squeeze through to playing Madison Square Garden and up to the present day. With tales of tours, Top Of The Pops, break ups and make ups it is a must see show for any fan of this truly iconic song writer.
Norman, the star of BBC's cult sci-fi comedy series Red Dwarf, provides humour in the most dead pan way you can imagine, drawing belly laughs from the audience with his take on life.
Backed up by the stunning vocals of Dorie Jackson this show brings great music, brilliant anecdotes and comedy at its best in a perfect combination for the Edinburgh Festival.
Sharon Burgess who booked Chris and Norman for The Gilded Balloon saw the show in Stirling "I loved the show - its a perfect combination of humour and music complimented by Norman's dead pan delivery and Chris's charismatic storytelling. Fringe audiences will adore it!"
Tickets go on sale on May 31st at www.gildedballoon.co.uk
