18th Dye are back in action and will support Marnie Stern & Gang Gang Dance at Santos Party House on November 29th as part of a tour to promote their new album Amorine Queen (out NOW). It will be their first US tour since their dissolution in 1999.
With their groundbreaking, catchy and explosive rock 18TH DYE earned great recognition in the international music press during the '90s, with albums Done (1992), Crayon (1993), Tribute to a Bus (1995) and Left (B-Sides and Rarities) (1999)...18th Dye's tour kicks off tommorrow (11/25) in Baltimore. All dates below...
From 1992 to 1998, the band was signed to Matador Records, and toured with Stereolab and Yo la Tengo, amongst others, also recording with legendary producer Steve Albini. They completed three BBC Peel sessions (the only Danish band to do that) and scored several Top 10 hits on the English indie charts while receiving attention on the CMJ chart in the US. After having released the album 'Tribute to a Bus' and after extensive touring in Europe and the US, 18TH DYE stopped playing and it was not until 2005, at VibraCrunch07 Festival, that they began playing live again. ....Now all three are together once again: 18TH DYE!
