Morrissey and his band flaunt their 7-inches

Morrissey has turned what initially were just a handful of rescheduled dates from this summer’s cancellation-prone Tour of Refusal into a full-fledged fall leg, with 19 concerts now scheduled throughout late October and November in the U.K. and Europe.

The trek launches Oct. 23 in Birmingham, England, just days before the release of Moz’s new 18-track b-sides compilation, Swords. The run of shows includes 10 dates in the U.K., plus a pair of French make-up shows and concerts in Holland, Belgium, Germany and Ireland — but no new Italian gigs to compensate for the cancellation of two performances in Rimini in July.

And, in a seemingly unrelated move, Morrissey-approved fan site True To You today posted — alongside news of the singer’s latest tour dates — what presumably is an outtake from the photo shoot that resulted in the now-infamous nearly nude photo of Moz and his bandmates (and five strategically placed 7-inch singles) that adorned the inner sleeve of his “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris” single. Shown above, the new photo finds the band still sporting 45s, but this time Moz is copping a feel.
