Primal Scream

After scrubbing a short set of U.S. dates last year to support 2013’s More Light, Bobby Gillespie will bring Primal Scream back to North America this May for a nine-date run that will begin with a previously announced set at the Austin Psych Fest’s three-day Levitation festival in Texas alongside The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Following that May 9 festival set, the band — which currently finds Gillespie joined by Andrew Innes, Martin Duffy, Darrin Mooney, Barrie Cadogan and Simone Butler — will play eight more shows in New Orleans, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia and New York City (see full details below).

The David Holmes-produced More Light features guest appearances by Robert Plant, My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields and Mark Stewart of The Pop Group.
