THE TWILIGHT SINGERS TO LAUNCH WORLDWIDE TOUR AT PRIVATE Q MAGAZINE EVENT
New album Dynamite Steps Out Now

March 2, 2011 - SEATTLE, WA - The Twilight Singers will launch their world tour in support of their forthcoming album beginning in Europe this month.  The upcoming shows will be the bands first in almost five years.

On March 16th, The Twilight Singers will perform an intimate private show at Q Live at Concrete on March 16th.  The band will be performing songs from their new album Dynamite Steps.  One prize winner will receive a signed drum head and a copy of the album.  Details on how to win tickets can be found here: http://news.qthemusic.com/qmusicclub/gigTwo.html 

Sub Pop Records just released Dynamite Steps, The Twilight Singers fifth album, on February 14th, 2011 worldwide.  While long time Twilight Singers and now Gutter Twins fans will certainly find what they’re looking for with this release, Dynamite Steps goes further with its ambition both sonically and confessionally than ever before.  So far the album has been one of the best reviewed of 2011.

Since the late 1980’s Greg Dulli has been a musical force to be reckoned with.  Rising to fame as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs during the 80’s & 90’s.  When the Whigs split up at the end of the decade, Dulli followed his muse and began to innovatively fuse indie, soul and electronic sounds in his post-Whigs collective The Twilight Singers, who released their first album, Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers, in 2000.  Their beloved second album Blackberry Belle followed in 2003, followed by a covers album She Loves You in 2004.  2006’s Powder Burns made many critics “Best Of” year end lists.

In 2008 Sub Pop veterans Dulli and Mark Lanegan returned to the label as The Gutter Twins for their debut album Saturnalia.  The band toured the world over for two years, made SPIN’s Top 20 Albums of the Year list and performed on Later With Jools Holland and the Late Show With David Letterman.

The band's US tour will begin on May 4th.  Full details can be found at www.thetwilightsingers.com
