Cursive reissuing ‘The Ugly Organ,’ touring in 2015 w/ a cellist

Cursive at House of Vans in 2012 (more by Ryan Muir)
Cursive

Cursive have yet to announce a followup to 2012’s I Am Gemini, but they’ll be celebrating the past with a reissue of 2003’s excellent cello-fueled The Ugly Organ on November 24 via longtime label home Saddle Creek. They’ll also be touring in 2015 and are promising a set with material from all of their albums, but that pulls heavily from The Ugly Organ. And they’ll be joined by a cellist for the Ugly Organ-era songs. That tour includes NYC shows happening on March 10 & 11 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (10/17) at noon.

Earlier this year, Cursive spinoff The White Octave reissued an album too.
