Brendan Perry reveals title of first Dead Can Dance album in 16 years: ‘Anastasis’

Last week we reported that Dead Can Dance will release its first new album in 16 years on Aug. 9, and now we know the title, thanks to the band’s co-founder Brendan Perry: Anastasis. As Perry writes in the discussion forum on his website, “The new album title is an ancient Greek word and its meaning is connected to the notion of rebirth.”

The album will be released on the same day that the reunited group — also featuring co-founder Lisa Gerrard — opens its eight-month world tour in Vancouver, B.C. The 16-date North American leg runs through a Sept. 7 show in Austin, Texas, then picks up in Europe on Sept. 19, in Istanbul, for 22 concerts, wrapping up Oct. 28 in Dublin.

Dates in South America, Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia are promised “very soon.”
