The Posies Announce 2016 Autumn Tour Dates in Europe

The-Posies-Oct-2016-Tour-Poster-1920

After a triumphant run of dates across Europe in March & April the newly revitalised trio-format band head back to Europe in October, following a 27-date run of secret shows in the US.

The band have always been exploring, growing and 2016 sees them continuing in that vein. None of US shows were in conventional music venues, with the location only revealed to ticket holders not more than 24 hours in advance of each show. The band are now touring as a trio, with no bass player, and Solid States collaborator Frankie Siragusa on drums. New album Solid States was not recorded in the usual band-in-a-room manner. Stringfellow and Auer sent song ideas back and forth online, writing and largely recording the album separately – but collaboratively – in their home studios.

The autumn tour starts in Manchester on 27th October, ending on 9th November in Diksmuide, Belgium. Solid States is out now Lojinx CD, digital and heavyweight vinyl LP.

Ken’s new album Danzig In The Moonlight is available for pre-order! Set for release 1 October on Lojinx, you place your order at danziginthemoonlight.com, where several limited-edition bundles are available. More information:

I’ve made some extra items including a vinyl single with a unique, only-available-here track called “The Well” which was just recorded in Cordoba days ago (next to a very old well–they say: “write what you know”), the first ever Ken Stringfellow T shirt, and of course the album in all its digital and analog glory. Hi quality double vinyl cut by the lab coat wearing geeks at Abbey Road. CDs with deluxe packaging, both wrapped in intricate artwork by some of Holland’s most cutting edge illustrators and designers.
