Alabama superstar Yelawolf is returning to New Zealand this summer to play two headline shows.

The hip hop star was last here to play 2016's Bay Dreams festival, and the year before that his visit caused so much hype he had to announce a second show and then eventually merge both shows into one at a larger venue.

Since then, he's just continued to get bigger and bigger.

After finding massive success with his first two albums, Yelawolf is releasing third full-length record Trial By Fire this Friday, and it's one of the most hotly anticipated albums of the year.

He's already released his single 'Punk' featuring Travis Barker and Juicy J and if that's anything to go by, Kiwi fans are in for a treat when the star returns to our shores in December.

Yelawolf will play Wellington's Shed 6 on December 13 and Auckland's Logan Campbell Centre on December 14.

Tickets go on sale 2pm Friday, October 27 and a Live Nation pre-sale begins midday, October 25.
