The Knife touring around Coachella, including T5 (dates); Light Asylum’s Shannon Funchess part of the production

Enigmatic Swedish duo The Knife released Shaking the Habitual last year and are playing Coachella in April. They’ve have started to add other shows while here as well. A full tour has not been announced yet but. It includes an NYC date at Terminal 5 on April 30. Tickets for T5 go on sale Saturday (1/18) at 10 AM. All dates — including Chicago — are listed below (update: now with the full tour).

This seems to be a much bigger production than when the Knife toured here in 2006. Says the band:

Shaking the Habitual, the album, lays the groundwork for this show. Based on the artistic and political ideas therein, we play with the expectations and question habits of the concert, the dance performance, the club and the music festival. Working within a highly commercial, professionalised and male-dominated music industry, we strive to twist and strangle hierarchies to find other ways of organizing work and its conditions. Disrespecting borders between digital and analogue, fake and real, professional and dilettante, star and cast, experimental acts and glamorous shows, nature and culture, audience and artist, blood family and chosen family, dance and action, a Buchla and bongo and the sound of a hit and a kiss.

We use the full potential of the electronic concert. In addition to bodies playing electronic music, we suggest different bodily engagements. We suggest dancing together as a mobilization, a collective moment for everyone in the room – on and off stage – to take part in. – [The Knife]

Among the performers being used this time is Light Asylum’s Shannon Funchess. Full roster of performers is below.
