The Breeders Announce North American Tour, Release New Video
The Breeders have announced they will be touring North America in support of their latest album, All Nerve. Along with the tour dates, they also released a homemade music video for “Nervous Mary” featuring puppet versions of the frontwomen Kim and Kelley Deal dancing to the song on a busy street. The puppets, including their hand-knitted sweaters, were made by fan and professional puppet-maker Milla Risku.
All Nerve was released in March and is the band’s fifth album since their 1990 debut. This will be the first time The Breeders have toured since twin-sister frontwomen Kim and Kelley Deal reunited six years ago with bandmates Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson to celebrate the 20th anniversary reissue of their sophomore album Last Splash.
This tour will include all four members of the band, with 20 stops across the country. The first show is on Sep. 27 in Pioneertown, Calif., a tiny town in the high desert of Southern California, and ends on Nov. 1 in Cleveland, Ohio, after which they head to Europe.
Tickets for most dates go on sale this week, with tour information listed on The Breeders' website.
