Legendary Pink Dots releasing ‘The Gethsemane Option,’ planning North American tour
by Bill Pearis
Long-running, prolific psych band The Legendary Pink Dots are set to release their new album, The Gethsemane Option, on June 25. The record was made with core duo Edward Ka-Spel (vocals, keyboards, songwriter) and Phil Knight (keyboards, electronics) and, from the sound samples on the label site, it sounds like their baroque eccentric gifts are still intact. That’s the cover art above.
The band are gearing up for a North American tour and while dates are still shaping up we do know they’ll be playing NYC on September 27 at Knitting Factory. Tickets to that show are on sale Friday (6/7) at 10 AM.
