British post-punk rockers The Horrors will be making their way back to the U.S. and Canada this June, with 14 concerts now scheduled throughout the early summer summer month. The band revealed the North American leg of their 2018 touring schedule on Wednesday, which is set to begin on June 12 in Washington, DC and come to an end on July 1 in Los Angeles. Tickets for select shows on the North American tour will be going on sale starting tomorrow (April 27) and can be purchased by clicking here.
The Horrors’ 2018 concert schedule currently has them playing a few dates in their native U.K. in May before coming over to the U.S. the following month. The five-piece goth-rock group will then head back to Britain for a scheduled appearance at London’s Citadel Festival. The continuous performances from band will keep helping to promote their fifth studio album, V, which arrived back in September of last year and has kept them on the road ever since. The Horrors had even come all the way over from Britain to celebrate the release of V with a pair of gigs at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade at the time of its early fall arrival.
Notable stops on the upcoming summer run include shows at Boston’s The Sinclair and Denver’s Bluebird Theatre, in addition to a show at the newly refurbished Asbury Lanes bowling alley/concert venue at the beach neighborhood of Asbury, New Jersey.
"We wanted to get nasty and make something that sounded quite horrible and quite unsettling again,” the band’s bassist Rhys Webb said about the new album in a 2017 interview. “I think we perhaps felt like that was a part of our world that we hadn't focused on as much over the last couple of years. It was like, okay, where do we go now? Higher or back into the shadows, back into the darkness a little bit more?"
