Excitingly for fans of the group -- who formed in 1988 and have gone on to inspire the likes of Nirvana and Soundgarden amongst others -- this will be their largest tour of the British Isles since Autumn 1992, when the Seattle group, supported by Leatherface, played an 11-date tour starting Sheffield and finishing in London's long-since-closed Kilburn National Ballroom.
They have played short tours usually involving London since, most recently last October as part of a larger European tour.
The upcoming 10 dates sees the group begin with one of four Irish concerts in Cork on Sept. 30 before crossing to play Newcastle on Oct. 4. They wrap up the tour in Glasgow on Oct. 9.
The full dates are:
Cork Cyrus Avenue, Ireland (Sept. 30)
Dublin Button factory, Ireland (Oct. 1)
Galway Roisin Dub, Ireland (Oct. 2)
Belfast Limelight, Northern Ireland (Oct. 3)
Newcastle Northumbria University, England (Oct. 4)
Brighton Concorde 2, England (Oct. 5)
London Electric Ballroom, England (Oct. 6)
Leeds Uni Stylus, England (Oct. 7)
Aberdeen Tunnels, Scotland (Oct. 8)
Glasgow Arches, Scotland (Oct. 9)
Tickets are on sale now. Before this the group are scheduled to play New York's All Tomorrow's Parties on Sep. 3 to 5 amongst a bill including Sonic Youth, the Stooges, the Breeders and many more.
