LOS ANGELES, CA – (Tuesday, February 5, 2013) – Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson, the iconic Breeders line up that made the classic 1993 album Last Splash, have announced nine additional U.S. dates and four U.K. dates as part of the band’s “LSXX Anniversary World Tour.” European dates for May and June are already announced. Tickets for the band’s preview show at Brooklyn’s Bell House scheduled for March 29 sold out within two minutes of going on sale. More dates to follow.
Kim, Kelley, Josephine, Jim, and Breeders’ violinist Carrie Bradley will perform the album live at select shows and festivals in the U.S. and Europe through 2013, playing together for the first time since 1994. The tour is in support of the release of LSXX, a deluxe edition of Last Splash, on 4AD.
At the center of the album is the infectiously appealing, instantly recognizable “Cannonball,” which, propelled in part by the video directed by Kim Gordon and Spike Jonze, was voted Single of the Year by the NME, and declared “one of the best pop songs of the nineties” by the UK’s Drowned in Sound. Pitchfork said of Last Splash, “…anyone open-minded to experimentation and the advancement of the form reveled in its brilliant, boundary-breaking melodies. Even its B-sides are classic.”
