SAINT ETIENNE ANNOUNCE FIRST
NORTH AMERICAN TOUR IN SIX YEARS
British pop trio Saint Etienne are returning to the US for the first time in six years this Fall in support of their recent release, Words and Music by Saint Etienne (Universal Music Enterprises). The band will be stopping in several cities across the country including New York City, Boston, Seattle, Los Angeles, and more.
The band’s Pete Wiggs says, “We haven’t been Stateside for five years or so - too long, and we’re itching to bring you our party friendly set - featuring lots of Words and Music… interspersed with a liberal assortment of yer classics. And there’ll be support from some of our current fave bands and DJs, a different ‘act’ every night (details on who and where soon)...a veritable Pandemonium Shadow Show.”
Saint Etienne have had an immutable and enduring relationship with pop music and that pristine pop moment. From the distinctly English sonic collages of their groundbreaking debut Foxbase Alpha through to the darker folk-inflected turns of Tiger Bay and even the glacial electronic landscapes of Sound of Water, the history of pop has clearly had a powerful impression on the trio of Pete Wiggs, Sarah Cracknell and Bob Stanley, with the result being that for this, their ninth studio album. They have assembled what constitutes a long form aural essay explicitly exploring the themes and memories triggered by music which has run through their entire body of work.
Words and Music by Saint Etienne is available as a deluxe package with 12 additional remixed tracks here.
