The reunited Last Splash-era lineup of The Breeders — Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson — this week announced initial European dates for the band’s upcoming tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of that album, revealing they’ll play in France, Belgium and the Netherlands prior to their previously scheduled slot at the Deerhunter-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival.
The band unveiled three shows in France followed by gigs in Brussels and Amsterdam, all in late May and early June. More dates are expected to be announced, including shows in the U.S.
