"An Evening With Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan" Returns

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.
