The Fall’s planned five-night residency in Brooklyn — bandleader Mark E. Smith and Co.’s first U.S. dates in more than 11 years — has grown to a full week as the band has added two more shows, one on each end, to that mid-September run of concerts at Baby’s All Right.
The original Sept. 12-16 shows are sold out, but tickets are available to the new Sept. 11 and 17 concerts.
The rare U.S. dates — which also include a headlining slot at Cropped Out Festival in Louisville, Ky. — 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.
The American concerts will mark The Fall’s first performances in the U.S. since a May 2006 tour. It’s still 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.
