In support of this third studio album, Love Story, US rapper Yelawolf has announced he will be heading to Australia this December for a national tour.

After last touring the country in 2012, the 35-year-old artist will return this year to perform shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.

The latest album from Eminem's protégé rose to the #1 position on the Billboard Hip-Hop Charts in the US and has been warmly received from fans and critics since his 2011 effort, Radioactive.

Pre-sale tickets for all four shows go on sale from midday until 10pm on 6 August, before they become available to the general public on Friday 7 August at 10am.
