In Concert is comprised of a selection of recordings from Dead Can Dance’s 2012 US tour. Available April 16th on CD and an extended digital edition, the release includes songs from Anastasis, the band’s first studio record in 16 years, as well as cuts from the group’s extensive catalogue. A triple LP version is set to be released shortly thereafter (April 30th).
“I would say without hesitation that this has been the most rewarding tour that we have ever undertaken,” notes Brendan Perry. “On one level it has been an absolute pleasure to perform in such beautiful locations with such a wonderful band and crew, but also to be able to connect on a personal level with the many devoted admirers of our art both old and new. It would seem in our case absence has certainly made the heart grow fonder and it has been an absolute joy to be given the opportunity to be able to share our music in the ultimate setting of the living work”

New Album "Division Street" coming at you 3/26/13 (US & Canada)
L.A. songwriter and producer Harper Simon will release his second solo album Division Street on March 26 via PIAS. The new project, the first since Simon's self-titled 2009 debut, was produced by Tom Rothrock (Elliott Smith, Beck) and features members of the Strokes, Bright Eyes, Elvis Costello’s Attractions and Wilco. “I felt challenged and inspired by the idea of making a modern psychedelic folk-rock album," says Simon, "a Tom Rothrock production like (Smith’s) XO, but then the Velvet Underground and the Stones kept entering in. Elliott Smith was very influenced by the Beatles, but my guitar playing is more influenced by Keith Richards. And I kept wanting to emphasize more lo-fi elements.” Simon is the son of songwriter Paul Simon.

“This new dEUS album shines with an immediate melodic brilliance”, Rolling Stone France
For the past two decades, dEUS have been thrilling us with the their kaleidoscopic sound and its unexpected turns. US audiences can now join in on the latest adventures as their latest two albums, Following Sea and Keep You Close, are released in the US for the first time this week on [PIAS] America. In celebration, the band are offering a free MP3 of Keep You Close’s title track. Download it here, please post and share. The albums are both now available on iTunes here (Following Sea) and here (Keep You Close).
Following Sea, dEUS’ latest album, was recorded in late, produced and mixed in bursts of activity following the October 2011 release of the previous album Keep You Close with producer Adam Noble again at the controls. Following on from the confessional noir of ‘Keep You Close’, ‘Following Sea’ is a lighter and brighter album. Shifted out of their comfort zone, dEUS deliver their first song in French, the opening spy thriller theme in waiting “Quatre Mains” and some of their most tender moments in “Nothings”, “The Soft Fall” and “Crazy About You”.
Keep You Close sees lead singer and lyricist Tom Barman determined to return the band to a more personal lyrical style and a warmer musical approach. The album features vocals from Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli on the track “The Dark Sets In.” The album was produced by Dave Bottrill (Muse, Tool, Placebo) and Adam Noble (Guillemots, Mumford And Sons, Paul McCartney).
