Pink tinted surprises

Expect a few Pink tinted surprises with long term LPD family member Patrick Q.Wright (aka Patrick Paganini) joining Amanda Palmer and Edward Ka-Spel on their forthcoming tour of the Western World. Shows in Boston, NYC, San Francisco and Los Angeles are scheduled on the American leg of the tour but tickets are selling fast (in fact West Coast shows and NYC are now sold out- tickets are still available for Boston and Brooklyn).

European shows follow in June, commencing at Proxima, Warsaw on May 31,  though again tickets are disappearing fast with Prague and Vienna dates now also sold out.

For full schedule, please go to tour dates.

Soon to be released: I Can Spin A Rainbow

Pre-order the double LP or CD through Bandcamp.  Orders will be shipped out around May 5th.

Vinyl

A double vinyl , lavishly packaged in a gatefold sleeve, with artwork by Judith Clute. The 4th side is exclusive as well. Pre-order possible now- it lands in May!  Cooking Vinyl are releasing this gem.

CD

The cd version, beautifully packaged on Cooking Vinyl.

 

February 2017 Newsletter

A time of great intensity in the peculiar universe of The Legendary Pink Dots. So much happening that perhaps it is best to approach the scenario chronologically….

Event number 1 occurs on March 17 in Athens at Etor’s Tenebrae De Profundis II Festival  which is being staged at the Gagarin 205 venue. A stunning event which also features long term Dots’ friends Nurse with Wound and Sol Invictus. Expect surprises.

Event Number 2 occurs on April 1 when the Dots travel to Lille for the “Musique au Musee” festival curated by Amikal Sonic at Les Gigottos Automates . Pierre Bastien is also playing at this festival!

In May Edward Ka-Spel embarks on a tour with Amanda Palmer and Patrick Q.Wright in support of their collaborative album, I Can Spin A Rainbow which will be released on cd and double vinyl by Cooking Vinyl in late Spring. It’s available for pre-order via Amanda’s Patreon page as of February 22nd and elsewhere (including our humble Bandcamp page) three days later. A unique 7” (The Hands EP) is also slated for release, while Amanda is also special guest on EK’s forthcoming solo album, High On Station Yellow Moon which is now under production by Soleilmoon Records.
