Slowdive announce North American tour dates

Reunited shoegaze icons cross the pond.

Following a round of acclaimed comeback shows at UK and European festivals, Slowdive have announced a tour of North America this fall – including a date in Toronto, where they played their final show in 1994.

“North America was good to Slowdive back in the 1990s,” say the band. “The fact that the last Slowdive concert was performed in Toronto (at Lee’s Palace) in 1994 is poignant. It felt like we were playing to people who ‘got it’ and some if our favourite performances were on those tours. We have a special connection to our audience in North America and we can’t wait to return in 2014!”

The band also have a clutch of dates in Asia to take care of, and this week they play Latitude Festival in Suffolk.

Slowdive’s FACT mix is essential, of course – listen to that and watch a clip of the band playing ‘When The Sun Hits’ at their comeback gig in London earlier this year. [via Pitchfork]
