Brendan Perry at Irving Plaza last year
The just-announced tour, with 15 dates in North America (listed below), kick-off in Vancouver and eventually make their way East for NYC shows at Beacon Theater on 8/28 and 8/29. Tickets for the Beacon shows go on sale Friday 3/30 at 9AM (and cost $55, $75, $95).
This will be the first time they've played as Dead Can Dance in NYC since Radio City in 2005, though Brendan Perry played Irving Plaza in 2011 as part of a tour with Robin Guthrie. Some belated pictures from that solo show are in this post.
About the new developments Brendan said...
"Myself and Lisa (Gerrard) are genuinely excited to be working together again in the studio, said Brendan Perry. "Writing began for the new album in the Autumn of 2011 and the final recording sessions will take place at Quivvy Studios in Ireland in the early part of this year. It will be a spring album to coincide with both natures reawakening and the group's subsequent rebirth."The band is also giving away a new EP entitled Live Happenings - IV available for the price of your email address.
"Our tour plans are also well under way and we have assembled a fine group of performers for the live concerts who have kindly put their own careers on hold in order to perform the music from our new album as well as some new arrangements from the archives."
