Xiu Xiu & Zola Jesus touring with & part of Former Ghosts

DOWNLOAD: Former Ghosts – Chin Up [ft. Nika Roza Danilova] (MP3)

Xiu Xiu/Deerhoof in Brooklyn this summer
(more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Xiu Xiu

Though we discussed Xiu Xiu‘s previously announced show at LPR with Merzbow, Ecstatic Sunshine, and Gentle on 9/26 (get your tix), we didn’t know at the time that the show was part of a large, scratch that, huge tour that would lead Xiu Xiu into the end of November. Those new dates will impact Maxwell’s in Hoboken on 10/15. Tickets are on sale (no opener listed).

Deerhoof and Father Murphy will open a portion of the North American dates though not in NYC where Xiu Xiu and Deerhoof played (Joy Division) together a couple months ago. Zola Jesus (who will play a sold-out United Palace show with The xx on 10/2) has been tapped to support on the European leg of that tour, and bring along Former Ghosts for the ride:

Former ghosts is the project of los angeles based electronic music composer/producer freddy ruppert. The project also includes collaborations from a handful of individuals including jamie stewart of xiu xiu, nika roza of zola jesus, yasmine kittles of tearist

Former Ghosts is prepping a new LP, New Love, for release via Upset the Rhythm on 11/9/10 (it was just recently pushed back over a month). Grab one of the tracks, Zola Jesus included, above. Full tracklist below.

I don’t think it’s far-fetched to expect some cross-pollination between the bands on those European dates which are listed, along with some videos and stuff, below…
