Dirty Projectors Announce World Tour Dates

Brooklyn indie rockers Dirty Projectors have announced new tour dates, which will mark their first headlining tour in nearly five years.

According to a press release, the band’s songwriter/producer David Longstreth “will quit his studio obsessiveness to embark on a new chapter in the Dirty Projectors story.”

The band released a self-titled album last year, but they haven’t played any headlining shows since the summer of 2013. Their upcoming tour will feature Longstreth, and longtime members Nat Baldwin (bass) and Mike Johnson (drums), as well as three new band members: Felicia Douglass (percussion/vocals), Maia Friedman (guitar/vocals) and Kristin Slipp (keyboards, vocals).

Their summer 2018 tour will include festival appearances at New York’s Governors Ball and Boston Calling, and will begin in Arizona in May and end in London at the end of August. They also released a cryptic tour trailer featuring the words “Lamplit Prose,” which may or may not be the title of a new album or simply their upcoming tour.
