Brendan Perry and Robin Guthrie to Kick Off Co-Headlining US Tour May 30th

Brendan Perry and Robin Guthrie today announced a co-headline tour of the United States. Dates start May 30th in Washington, DC and the tour will end on June 14th in Solana Beach, CA. The tour marks Perry’s first Stateside shows since he toured with Dead Can Dance in 2005, and Guthrie’s first appearance since he performed at All Tomorrow’s Parties in New York in 2009. While the two artists were labelmates at 4AD several years ago, this marks the first time since that they have toured together. Tickets for all dates will go onsale on Friday, March 11th via digital outlets and venue box offices.

The tour will coincide with the release of Perry’s Ark on May 24th, as previously announced this week. He had this to say regarding the tour and album release, “I am delighted to have found a suitable US label in The End Records and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with them. This new collaboration has also opened the way for me to perform again in North America, the prospect of which I am looking forward to with great anticipation and excitement.”

Robin Guthrie, founder, writer and producer of Cocteau Twins, who has been quietly building up a body of work over the last thirty years, including many instrumental releases and movie soundtracks, will be releasing a new album Emeralds via his US label Darla Records on the 15th of May 2011. As a sidestep to his usual one man live performance he will be performing with a three piece band which he feels may be more appropriate for the concert halls on this tour. As he explains “It’ll be lovely to share the stage with Brendan again, and performing as a three piece is an ideal opportunity for me to try something a little different.”
