The seminal punk band played together for the first time in 14 years last month
The Distillers have announced a new raft of tour dates and shared footage from their first tour in 14 years.
The LA punk band fronted by Brody Dalle formed in 1998 and split in 2006. Their last show together in their original run was at Paris’ La Boule Noire on November 17, 2004. In January 2018, Dalle teased the band’s return, later announcing a short string of gigs in April and May.
Now, the group have confirmed more live dates in North America, beginning in Vancouver on September 10. The band will then travel down the west coast of the US before finishing in Las Vegas on September 20.
The Distillers will play:
Vancouver, Commodore Ballroom (September 10)
Seattle, The Showbox (11)
Portland, Roseland (12)
Oakland, Fox Theatre (14)
Los Angeles, Hollywood Palladium (15)
San Diego, The Observatory (18)
Las Vegas, Brooklyn Bowl (20)
Tickets for the shows will go on sale on Friday (June 1). In a Facebook post, Dalle also teased fans should “stay tuned.” On Instagram, meanwhile, she revealed LA glam-punk band Starcrawler would support on all September dates.
The tour announcement also features footage from The Distillers’ recent reunion run. Soundtracked by a live recording of ‘The Hunger’, the clip shows Dalle crowd-surfing and meeting fans, and the band performing at intimate venues and onstage at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees festival. Watch the video above.
Meanwhile, Dalle will support Queens Of The Stone Age at their Finsbury Park show next month. The frontwoman will perform a “stripped down” solo set at the gig, which takes place on June 30. Tickets for the gig are available here. Hinds, Miles Kane, The Hives, Run The Jewels, Curtis Harding and more are also set to appear.
