Lee Ranaldo

Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth released his first rock-oriented solo album, Between the Times and the Tides in 2012, and did a ton of touring in support of it with his band (Alan Licht, Steve Shelly, and Tim Luntzel), that he’s since renamed The Dust. Now, Lee Ranaldo and the Dust are set to release what will technically be their debut album (“reflecting its more band-oriented approach and sound”) this fall. It’s a double album due out in October, but no exact release date or album title have been announced yet.

As discussed, Lee Ranaldo and the Dust are set to play the second-to-last Maxwell’s show ever on July 30 with Houndmouth (who play Newport Folk Festival first). That show has long sold out, but the band have now announced a full international tour, which they’ll kick off this October. The tour begins in Hudson, NY and it brings the band back to NYC for a show on October 25 at The Bell House. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/26) at 10 AM.

All dates are listed, along with a recent live video, below…
