"...as evinced by Spiritualized's latest release "Sweet Heart Sweet Light," Pierce has yet to come close to hitting the bottom of this particularly deep well, and as the group ably showed at a sold out Metro Thursday night, Spiritualized has also found a comfortable place balancing bombast with its more subtle moments. That's fitting, as Pierce's songs, too, have long explored various contrasts, the push and pull between despair and salvation, sickness and cure, noise and beauty, the extremes of darkness and -- like emerging from a long, dark tunnel -- the euphoric release of light. At its best and most grandiose, it's quite a rush..." [Chicago Tribune]Nikki Lane, who was last in town with Noah & the Whale, opened for Spiritualized at Metro back on Thursday (May 3). More pictures from the show, along with the headliner's setlist (which you can also listen to as a Spotify playlist) (h/t windycityrock), below...

UK psych rockers Spiritualized announced last year that their new LP Sweet Heart Sweet Light would be out on March 19th in the US via Fat Possum/Domino Records imprint Double Six in the UK. According to SPIN, the album's release has now been delayed and we can expect it to hit stores in late March or early April. Head to BrooklynVegan to check out its tracklisting and hear frontman Jason Pierce's thoughts on making the LP.
The group are set to kick off a brief European tour in mid-March and have just announced a full set of North American tour dates as well. Beginning in Minneapolis on May 2nd, they'll reach Chicago's Metro for a performance just one day later. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (2/4), at noon CST.
All known 2012 tour dates are below.
