Mark E. Smith will bring the current iteration of The Fall to America this September for the band’s first U.S. dates in more than 11 years: a five-night residency in Brooklyn followed by a headlining appearance at the Cropped Out Festival in Louisville, Ky.
The U.S. dates will follow the release of New Facts Emerge, the 32nd album from The Fall. The 11-song collection, the band’s first since 2015’s Sub-Lingual Tablet, is due out July 28 on Cherry Red Records.
Smith and Co. will perform at London’s famed 100 Club on the eve of the new album’s release, then are due to perform Sept. 12 through 16 at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn. From there, the band headlines the Kentucky festival on Sept. 23, and has three more U.K. dates slotted for late October and early November.
Tickets for the Brooklyn residency go on sale 12 p.m. Eastern on Friday.
The American concerts will mark The Fall’s first performances in the U.S. since a May 2006 tour. It’s not yet known whether the band will play additional shows will in the U.S. this September.
The Fall’s current lineup features Smith (of course), along with drummer Kieron Melling, guitarist Peter Greenway and bassist Dave Spurr; keyboardist Elena Poulou, who had been in the group since the early 2000s, is no longer in the band.
