Massive Attack heading back to North America after 8 years for U.S. Tour

The long wait is over as Massive Attack are heading back to North America for their upcoming 2006 U.S. tour – the band’s first trip back to the state in eight years.

Currently Massive Attack are in the midst of a summer World Tour, and will bring their spellbinding live show to the U.S. and to such venues as the legendary Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, San Francisco’s Greek Theater and multiple nights at New York’s Roseland Ballroom.  The band will also be headlining both the V Festival in Toronto and Austin City Limits Festival.  A full tour itinerary is listed below.

The band treated Southern Californians to a sneak peek of their live show at this year’s Coachalla Valley Music and Arts Festival.  Playing to a crowd of over 60,000, the band (which included two drummers and vocals by Horace Andy and former Cocteau Twins’ nightingale, Elizabeth Fraser) satiated fans with live renditions of such seminal Massive tunes as “Karmacoma,” “Angel” and “Safe From Harm.” 

Massive Attack recently released ‘Collected’ on April 4th on Virgin Records. The album is a two-disc set containing the band’s selection of essential tracks representing their musical legacy to date.  The set also includes a bonus disc of previously unreleased material and a complete anthology of their groundbreaking videos.

The band is working on their fifth studio album ‘Weather Underground’ with long time musical partner and co-producer Neil Davidge.  ‘Weather Underground’ is slated for release in early, 2007.
