Another reason to be jealous of Europeans.
As if stunning architecture, real cinema, authentic mom and pop restaurants serving insanely delicious gastronomical delights, a superb railway system and serious disdain for big box stores like WalMart wasn't enough, now Europeans can add an acoustic tour from Gutter Twins Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan to their repetoire.
According to Summerskiss.com, Dulli and Lanegan are taking fellow Gutter guitarist Dave Rosser with them on an acoustic European trek. Here's the release:
“An Evening With Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan”
Goes On Sale This Friday November 14th
Sub Pop veterans Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan will return to Europe beginning January 15th 2009 for sixteen special intimate performances. Dulli and Lanegan along with guitarist Dave Rosser will perform a ‘Stripped Down In The Gutter’ set. By sheer virtue of the intimacy of the show, it will be unique, as neither Dulli nor Lanegan have toured in this capacity before.
“Since our instrumentation for this tour is going to be radically different, the shows will include many songs neither of us have performed in quite sometime or ever,” Dulli commented.
“An Evening With Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan” will kick off on January 15th in Glasgow at the Oran Mor and will run through February 2nd in Athens, Greece at Gagarin 205. Tickets will go on sale this Friday (November 14th) for all sixteen shows.
The Gutter Twins have had a massively successful year with the release of their debut album Saturnalia, and their follow up EP Adorata for Sub Pop Records. It’s been a welcome homecoming to Sub Pop for both artists.
Mark Lanegan rose to fame as singer for the much-loved Seattle band Screaming Trees and Greg Dulli as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs. Following the break up of both groups, Lanegan and Dulli went on to achieve significant notice on their own. Lanegan continued to release successful solo albums, as well as create vivid partnerships with the likes of Belle & Sebastian singer Isobel Campbell and Queens of the Stone Age. Dulli, meanwhile, innovatively fused indie, soul and electronic sounds in his post-Whigs ensemble the Twilight Singers, who released their first album, Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers, in 2000; the most recent Twilight effort, 2006’s Powder Burns. Saturnalia is sure to make many ‘Best Of 2008′ lists.
Following the conclusion of this tour, Dulli will begin work on a new Twilight Singers album; while Mark Lanegan has an upcoming project with Soulsavers and will begin work on his first solo album in five years.
