Tour To Feature Special Guests Margo & The Nuclear So & So’s

April 28, 2011 – SEATTLE, WA: The Twilight Singers will begin their US tour in support of their new album Dynamite Steps next Wednesday in Oxford, MS.  The 23-city tour will conclude in New Orleans, LA on June 3rd.  Tickets for all shows are on sale now.  For the most up to date information on ticket sales visit

Special guests Margot and the Nuclear So and So's will open all shows on the US run.  The band is currently recording their fourth album and will be taking a break to join The Twilight Singers on tour.

Sub Pop Records has released Dynamite Steps, The Twilight Singers fifth album.  The band performed their first single ‘On The Corner’ on the Late Show With David Letterman this past Tuesday.

Clearly the next chapter in an already long and stellar career for Greg Dulli, Dynamite Steps reaches a whole new level of catharsis and progression, evocatively cramming all the highs and lows of the maverick singer-songwriter’s past half-decade into unexpected sonic trapdoors.  Various guests make contributions to the album including: Ani DiFranco, Joseph Arthur, Petra Haden, Nick McCabe (The Verve), and Mark Lanegan.

Rising to fame as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs during the 80’s & 90’s, Greg 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 he teamed up with long time friend Mark Lanegan to form The Gutter Twins who released the critically acclaimed album Saturnalia the same year.
