Hercules And The Love Affair Announce Headlining North American Tour





Hercules, Hercules, Hercules! We've all heard the hype, and deservedly so, but we might not have been inclined to list these tour dates if they didn't include shows with Mos Def, The B-52s and James Murphy.


The eight piece live band includes Andy manning keyboards, drum machines and providing backing vocals, a horn section, Kim Ann and Nomi on lead vocals, live drums, live bass with even more keyboards, and both their self-titled album and lead single, "Blind", debuted in the UK Top 40. So I guess us lousy chaps in this hemisphere should thank our lucky stars we're getting the rare chance to see them.

"Blind"
