Last summer, post-punk legends Echo & the Bunnymen and reunited alt-rockers Violent Femmes combined forces on a North American co-headlining tour. The two acts enjoyed hitting the road together so much they’re planning to do it again this July.
The 11-date itinerary will see Echo & the Bunnymen and Violent Femmes perform in cities like San Antonio, Houston, Nashville, Lake Buena Vista, and Washington, DC. According to a press statement, the pair will take turns closing out alternate shows.
Echo & the Bunnymen released their most recent LP, Meteorites, in 2014. As for Violent Femmes, they put out a live record called 2 Mics & the Truth: Unplugged & Unhinged in America in 2017 and We Can Do Anything, their first full-length of original material in over a decade, in 2016. This joint tour follows a US headlining tour of their own in June.
