The Last Shadow Puppets are set to play two shows in New York and Los Angeles next week, supporting the release of an exclusive EP release.
The US-only version of ‘My Mistakes Were Made For You’, an eight-song EP, came out yesterday (October 21) and will be released on CD on November 4. Tracks on the EP include a live version of ‘Paris Summer’ (made famous by Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra) featuring Alison Mosshart of The Kills.
The band released their debut album ‘The Age Of The Understatement’ earlier this year, and performed a number of low-key shows in Manhattan and Brooklyn. In March, the duo recorded all the acoustic tracks from the EP at Avatar Studios in New York.
The upcoming gigs in New York and Los Angeles are the band’s first ever full-blown US shows performing with an orchestra.
The dates are:
New York City, NY The Grand Ballroom (October 30)
