They will perform in Scunthorpe on March 16 ahead of their debut album Inform – Educate – Entertain hitting the shelves on May 6.
Speaking to the Telegraph, J said: "It's not your typical show. It's live music performed with visuals so it's quite interesting.
"Our success has all been down to releasing our EP War Room and having it played on 6 Music. People have responded to it well."
Their music sees them weave samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics.
J said: "Our music style is like a DJ with spoken words over clips. The band just started off with me as a self-taught musician and no visuals and now we have quite a few festivals lined up, like Kendal Calling and the Secret Garden Party."
Signal 30 – based on US road safety film from 1959 – is the title of the band's debut single, set for release on April 15.
The band is not without previous success – with three tracks all winning BBC 6Music's Rebel Playlist in 2012 - a breakthrough year for the band which saw them selling 13k copies of their debut release 'The War Room' EP.
The unique high-speed music has won them many fans, with Xfm, BBC Radio 2, and Absolute Music all giving air-time to the group's music.
Following on from the performance in Scunthorpe Public Broadcasting Service will go on a 20 date album tour that will see perform across the UK at venues in London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin.
