Throwing Muses announce European tour in support of new ‘Anthology’ best-of

As promised, the Throwing Muses will support the release of the 4AD band’s forthcoming best-of set Anthology — which initially will be released in a limited-edition deluxe package with a second disc of B-sides and rare cuts — with live dates, including a just-announced 15-date tour of Europe and the United Kingdom this fall.

The band — Kristin Hersh, Dave Narcizo and Bernard Georges — will open the trek Oct. 24 in Holland, and play shows in continental Europe through an Oct. 30 date in Spain. Then it’s off to the U.K. and Ireland beginning Nov. 1 in Bexhill for 10 more dates (including two that are still marked “to be announced”) that conclude Nov. 10 in Dublin.

It’s unclear whether the Muses, who have finished work on a new album, plan to tour the U.S. in connection with the Sept. 5 release of Anthology. The best-of wasn’t initially going to be released in the U.S., since 4AD doesn’t have rights to the band in America. But, Beggars Archive reports on its blog, “We are in talks with the rights owners to allow our NY office to import a limited quantity which we can sell direct at a domestic price.”

The Muses do have at least one U.S. show on the horizon, though: Athens PopFest in October.
