More European dates will be announced at a later date. The electronic group formed in 1999 but did not perform live until 2006.

Their official website stated: "The Knife announce they will be playing two shows at Copenhagen's Vega on May 12 and 13.

"The shows are the first dates announced of the forthcoming 'Shaking The Habitual' tour, with further European dates to be announced soon."

Shaking the Habitual will be the band's fourth studio album, their first since 2006's Silent Shout.

Since then, Dreijer Andersson has released a solo album as her side-project Fever Ray, in 2009.

The new album will be released on April 8.
