Danish alt-rock band Mew is slated to breeze into Boston for a show at the Paradise Rock Club on October 11th, with The Dodos as support.
The tour is in support the of the April 28 release of Mew’s critically-acclaimed album, + – (‘plus-minus’/PIAS).
On these dates, Mew’s 2015 touring lineup – Jonas Bjerre/vocals, Silke Utke Graae Jorgensen/drums, bassist Johan Wohlert (recently reunited as its original four-piece with the return of Wohlert), Mads Wegner/guitar and Nick Watts/keyboards – will utilize video, LED trees and other special lighting to create a quixotic experience for concert-goers. The set list will include fan-favorites such as “Zookeeper’s Boy,” “Am I Wry? No,” “Comforting Sounds,” and “Snow Brigade,” interspersed seamlessly alongside new tracks like “Satellites,” “Water Slides,” and “Witness.”
“We are thrilled that we will finally be returning to North America to tour,” said Mew’s vocalist Jonas Bjerre. “It’s been too long and we can’t wait to play for our U.S. and Canadian fans again.”
