Singer in battle with Dr Luke set to unveil new band Kesha And The Creepies
Kesha is set to reveal new music when she tours the US in August.
Kesha has spent the past year embroiled in a legal battle with producer Dr Luke and her record label Sony after accusing him of raping her when she was one of his musical protégés.
Since her last album ‘Warrior’ in 2012, Kesha has moved away from pop music, playing with Alice Cooper’s supergroup Hollywood Vampires and Ben Folds as well as covering Bob Dylan’s 1964 song ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ at the Billboard Music Awards.
The day has come that I, now, present to you, Kesha and The Creepies. This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music. I thrive from making and performing music, and much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don’t get to create and perform. So, for a short ride and in mostly small intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation. It’s been too long. Until I can release my own music I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols. I’ve hand picked songs from artists that have helped shape who I am and the music I make today. I have missed you, all of you, so if you would like to boogie, come join us.

The seven-date tour will see Kesha play with her new backing band The Creepies, though there as yet no details on who will be in the band.
Kesha said of the shows:“I thrive from making and performing music. Much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don’t get to create and perform. So, for a short ride and in mostly intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation. It’s been too long.”
Of the new songs, Kesha said: “This project comes from my deep, eternal love of dirty rock & roll country music.”
The first show is in Cleveland on August 9.
Kesha’s lawsuit demanding she be freed from her contract with Sony remains ongoing. Dr Luke has denied the singer’s claims.
