The Breeders to visit Prague - New US and European tour dates announced!

All of The Breeders’ previous albums will be re-issued on vinyl on 18th May!

The Breeders continue to tour their latest album "All Nerve" with further US summer shows and European dates announced for November. Tickets for the band’s headline shows are already on sale. Currently on the road in North America, the band will tour the UK and Europe throughout the Spring and Summer.

They will have a show in Prague on 14th November 2018 at Lucerna Music Bar! A full list of tour dates can be found below and HERE.

This coincides with the news that the band’s previous albums – "Pod", "Last Splash", "Title TK", and "Mountain Battles" – will be re-issued on vinyl on 18th May. This is the first time "Pod" and "Last Splash" will be released by 4AD in North America. Pre-order them from here.

"Pod", the 1990 debut featuring the line-up of Pixies' Kim Deal, Throwing Muses’ Tanya Donelly, the Perfect Disaster’s Josephine Wiggs and Slint’s Britt Walford, was recorded by Steve Albini. Kurt Cobain listed the record as one of his top three favourite albums saying, “the way they structure [the songs] is totally unique.” Critically acclaimed when it came out, Pod' s legacy lives on – Pitchfork called it a “blissful mindfuck of a record,” and ranked it in their Best Albums of the 90s.

"Last Splash" was recorded in 1993 by what is now regarded as the ‘classic’ Breeders line-up of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson. Including the twisted pop singles "Cannonball" and "Divine Hammer", it has become one of the defining albums of the 90s.

2002’s "Title TK" saw the band work with Steve Albini once more, with the Guardian saying it was “a welcome return to punky pop that knows how to flex some melodic muscle.” The album has been out of print on vinyl since its release.

Fourth album "Mountain Battles", a perfectly formed album of 13 miniatures in 36 minutes engineered by Steve Albini, was originally released in 2008. Like "Title TK" before it, "Mountain Battleshas been out of print since its release.

"All Nerve", the Breeders’ fifth studio album, saw the iconic line-up of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson reunite for the first time since the release of the platinum-selling album "Last Splash". Released earlier this year, critics and fans welcomed them back with open arms and they scored their highest chart positions – including top 10 in the UK – in 25 years.



Some press about The Breeders:

“As vital as any of their previous four LPs…The Breeders have proved themselves more consistently thrilling than almost any other band in indie-rock.” Uncut 9/10

“From the off, All Nerve is both a joyous, unhinged blast from the past and a reminder of how fun and free rock can be.” The Sunday Times – Album of the Week

“Music that is rich and deep and repays repeated listening.” The Guardian – Album of the Week ****

“It’s an enormously pleasant surprise to have the band back.” NPR

“A twisted, swirling record of gorgeous harmony set against catapulting rhythms and just the right balance of body-horror lyricism that stands firmly on its own..” Under The Radar

“The most adventurous Breeders album since, no surprise, Last Splash.” Noisey

 “Heroic.” MOJO **** | “Startlingly fresh.” Q ****
