"An Evening With Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan" Returns

04.23.09

After their series of sold out shows in Europe and on the West Coast of America this past January & February, Sub Pop veterans Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan will bring their special intimate performances to South America, Australia and Europe this July.

Dulli and Lanegan’s upcoming shows in Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Australia will be their first performances together in those countries since the release of The Gutter Twins debut album Saturnalia. Guitarist/singer Dave Rosser will once again perform with the duo for all of the upcoming shows. Rosser’s indispensible talent was a key ingredient to the success of all of the previous shows and the three artists share a rare camaraderie on stage together.
“It was very exciting playing our songs this way so we jumped at the chance to run it back,” commented Dulli. “It's an honor to be asked to reprise the show especially by the South Americans, as none of us have been there before. We added a couple extra songs for the West Coast run and I'm sure we'll play a few we didn't last time.”

“An Evening With Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan” will reach three contents beginning on July 1st in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Other highlights along the way include performances at The Cactus Festival in Bruges and the Royal Festival Hall in London. The tour will conclude with a performance at this year’s Splendour in the Grass festival in Australia.

The Gutter Twins enjoyed a massively successful 2008 with the release of Saturnalia, and their follow up EP Adorata for Sub Pop Records. It’s been a welcome homecoming to Sub Pop for both artists as Saturnalia was named by SPIN Magazine has one of the best albums of 2008.

Mark Lanegan rose to fame as singer for the much-loved Seattle band Screaming Trees and Greg Dulli as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs. Following the break up of both groups, Lanegan and Dulli went on to achieve significant notice on their own. Lanegan continued to release successful solo albums, as well as create vivid partnerships with the likes of Belle & Sebastian singer Isobel Campbell and Queens of the Stone Age. Dulli, meanwhile, innovatively fused indie, soul and electronic sounds in his post-Whigs ensemble the Twilight Singers, who released their first album, Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers, in 2000. The most recent Twilight effort was 2006’s Powder Burns.

Beyond their tour this coming July, Greg Dulli has already begun work on a new Twilight Singers album, which he expects to release in 2010. Mark Lanegan has an upcoming project with Soulsavers and will begin work on his first solo album in five years.

"An Evening With Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan"

Goes On Sale This Friday November 14th

Sub Pop veterans Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan will return to Europe beginning January 15th 2009 for sixteen special intimate performances. Dulli and Lanegan along with guitarist Dave Rosser will perform a 'Stripped Down In The Gutter' set. By sheer virtue of the intimacy of the show, it will be unique, as neither Dulli nor Lanegan have toured in this capacity before.

"Since our instrumentation for this tour is going to be radically different, the shows will include many songs neither of us have performed in quite sometime or ever," Dulli commented.

"An Evening With Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan" will kick off on January 15th in Glasgow at the Oran Mor and will run through February 2nd in Athens, Greece at Gagarin 205. Tickets will go on sale this Friday (November 14th) for all sixteen shows.

The Gutter Twins have had a massively successful year with the release of their debut album Saturnalia, and their follow up EP Adorata for Sub Pop Records. It's been a welcome homecoming to Sub Pop for both artists.

Mark Lanegan rose to fame as singer for the much-loved Seattle band Screaming Trees and Greg Dulli as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs. Following the break up of both groups, Lanegan and Dulli went on to achieve significant notice on their own.

Greg Dulli to Release Live at Triple Door

10.14.08
GREG DULLI TO RELEASE
FIRST EVER LIVE SOLO ALBUM
LIVE AT TRIPLE DOOR

Album Available Worldwide Digitally On October 28th

It was October of last year when Greg Dulli was asked to perform a benefit show for The Vera Project (a local music-arts center run by and for youth) in Seattle, WA. At the time, Dulli was in-between projects. His band, The Twilight Singers were on hiatus after a full year of touring, while his new project with Mark Lanegan, The Gutter Twins, wasn't quite ready to be unveiled to the general public.

Rather than pass on the offer, he decided to improvise. Dulli assembled an eclectic collection of musicians including Petra Haden, Shawn Smith, Jeff Klein and Barb Antonio to reinterpret and recreate acoustically, some of his finest material over a two-night stand at the intimate Triple Door Theatre in downtown Seattle.

The highlights from these shows will now finally be released worldwide digitally as Live At Triple Door on October 28th on Dulli's own Infernal Recordings label.

Performing a stripped down and subdued set, Dulli leads his band through a selection of Twilight Singers songs such as "King Only" and "Candy Cane Crawl," a brand new (at the time) Gutter Twins song "Front Street" along with a mix of covers, including his first live version of Jose Gonzalez's "Down The Line". For a man that's been known for his live performances, this release is shockingly the first ever full live album of Greg Dulli's illustrious career.

“I was originally asked to perform alone but that prospect was terrifying to me, so I asked Petra to come along,” commented Dulli. “Then I thought ‘Jeff's done this a million times, I'll bring him too.’ I hadn't played with Shawn or Barb in ten years and they lived in Seattle, so I called them and what started as a potentially scary situation turned into a beautiful band without all the clanging and banging. And I could actually hear myself onstage for once and sang (mostly) in key.”

Dulli's current project, The Gutter Twins will be performing at this year's Voodoo Music Festival in New Orleans on October 24th and the band be returning to the East Coast of the U.S. for four shows in early November (Philly, Brooklyn, D.C. and Boston).

Full Track Listing For Live At Triple Door:
1. The Killer
2. Candy Cane Crawl
3. Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair
4. Tell Everyone
5. That’s Just How That Bird Sings
6. Isn’t It A Pity/Atlantis

MARK LANEGAN & GREG DULLI RETURN TO SUB POP AS THE GUTTER TWINS

Highly Anticipated Gutter Twins Record Saturnalia Scheduled for March 4th, 2008 Worldwide Release

Special Pre-Record Release Performances Scheduled for New York, Paris, London, Amsterdam and San Francisco

SEATTLE, WA - Sub Pop veterans Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan return to the label in its 20th year under the moniker The Gutter Twins for the March 4th, 2008 worldwide release of Saturnalia, their highly anticipated first album. In addition, the band has announced a handful of very special US and European show dates to preview the complex and carefully crafted songs in advance of the official record release. Show dates and on sale information provided below.

Mark Lanegan rose to fame as singer for the much loved Seattle band Screaming Trees qnd Greg Dulli as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs. Following the break up of both groups, Lanegan and Dulli went on to achieve significant notice on their own. Lanegan continued to release successful solo albums, as well as create vivid partnerships with the likes of Belle & Sebastian singer Isobel Campbell and Queens of the Stone Age. Dulli, meanwhile, innovatively fused indie, soul and electronic sounds in his post-Whigs ensemble the Twilight Singers, who released their first album, Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers, in 2000; the most recent Twilight effort, 2006's Powder Burns, proved a crowning achievement, landing on many year-end best lists.

The Gutter Twins was born out of a rumor told by Lanegan to a journalist after the two artists began collaborating together in various ways in 2002. What started as a rumor grew into an honest and raw record, and while Saturnalia brings together the driving forces behind '90s favorites, the record does not rest on the sonic laurels of these singer's previous successes.

"I couldn't tell you what Saturnalia's theme is, but there's a seeking of transcendence that's new." Greg Dulli explains. "I have never written songs like this before - it's a different temple I'm visiting."

Upcoming show Dates
2/14/08 New York, NY Bowery Ballroom (On sale 11/30)
2/19/08 Paris, France Maroquinerie (On sale 11/29)
2/21/08 London, England Koko - Sponsored by NME (On sale now)
2/23/08 Amsterdam, Netherlands Melkweg (On Sale 11/29)
