Dead Can Dance will release a deluxe live edition of their current album ‘Anastasis’ through Dead Can Dance/[PIAS] Recordings on 22nd April. The band has also announced a show at London’s Roundhouse on 2nd July. The show follows the band’s Royal Albert Hall performance last October, which sold out in under 48 hours. Dead Can Dance’s current year-long world tour is their first since 1995 and features 85 shows across 4 continents. Performing to over 400,000 people, the band have appeared at some of the world’s most iconic venues incl. Sydney’s Royal Opera House, London’s Royal Albert Hall and New York’s Beacon Theatre. Dead Can Dance will also make various festival appearances this year and have confirmed slots at Coachella, Primavera and Roskilde.
“I would say without hesitation that this has been the most rewarding tour that we have ever undertaken,” notes Brendan Perry. “On one level it has been an absolute pleasure to perform in such beautiful locations with such a wonderful band and crew, but also to be able to connect on a personal level with the many devoted admirers of our art both old and new. It would seem in our case absence has certainly made the heart grow fonder and it has been an absolute joy to be given the opportunity to be able to share our music in the ultimate setting of the living work”
Available on the following formats, the deluxe live edition of ‘Anastasis’ will be followed by a single ‘Children of the Sun’ on 1st July. Released last August ‘Anastasis’ is Dead Can Dance’s first album since 1996’s ‘Spiritchaser’ and has sold over 150,000 copies worldwide.
