Out today, In Concert is comprised of a selection of recordings from Dead Can Dance’s 2012 US tour. Available on CD and an extended digital edition in North America, the release includes songs from Anastasis, the band’s first studio record in 16 years, as well as cuts from the group’s extensive catalogue. In Concert is available as a full stream now courtesy of Rolling Stone and a triple LP version is set to be released shortly.
“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.”
Dead Can Dance’s current year long world tour is their first since 1995 and features 85 shows across four continents. Performing to over 400,000 people, the band have appeared at some of the world’s most iconic venues including Sydney’s Royal Opera House, London’s Royal Albert Hall and New York’s Beacon Theatre. Following a successful performance on Coachella’s main stage last weekend, Dead Can Dance will be back this Sunday for another performance at the Mojave Tent at 11 pm.
In addition to their Coachella performance, the band will appear live on Los Angeles’s KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic for their first radio performance of their West coast run.
