POPTONE, which features Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins performing songs from their years in Tones on Tail and Love & Rockets, have expanded their tour to include Midwest and East Coast dates this summer. That includes shows at NJ's Stone Pony on August 3 and NYC's Irving Plaza on August 5. Tickets for both those shows are currently on various presales (you can use password MUSICGEEKS or SOUNDCHECK), and go on sale to the general public on Thursday, May 25 at 10 AM.

The band is rounded out by Kevin Haskins' daughter, Diva Dompe, on bass. All dates, and a recent setlist of songs POPTONE are performing (that includes a Bauhaus song too) and a few live videos, are below.

Meanwhile, Haskins' brother (and onetime Love & Rockets / Bauhaus bandmate) David J releases his new album, Vagabond Songs, this Friday (May 26). You can listen to "The Day David Bowie Died" below. He'll be on tour for the album starting next week, and hits NYC on June 20 at The Bowery Electric with Paul Wallfisch (Swans, Botanica). Tickets are on sale. All David J dates are listed below.

Maybe POPTONE and David J will run into each other at a truck stop somewhere and decide to get Love & Rockets back together for real. One can dream.
