Returning Perth rockers Karnivool have announced three new shows for their upcoming national tour, theMusic.com.au can reveal, and the band have unveiled a look into their forthcoming DVD with the news.

The band have announced a Canberra show for fans in the capitol city who would have otherwise missed out and with the first Sydney show at The Hi-Fi close to selling out, a second show has been added there for the following day.

Always destined to do well in their hometown, a third show at Perth's Rosemount has been announced while all three of Melbourne's The Hi-Fi shows have sold out and that's all she wrote there.

Fans will know that the band have been working on a DVD and after five years of compiling footage the release does in fact exist and is currently being edited, by the band themselves, into the finished product.
