The Antlers have announced that they will head out on tour later this year to mark the tenth anniversary of their ‘Hospice’ album, to coincide with a re-issue of the LP. The shows won’t be in actual hospices, which is a shame, but they will see the album performed in full, so there’s that.

The band’s Peter Silberman says of the reissue campaign: “It will be newly pressed on double white vinyl, with deluxe artwork and packaging courtesy of the album’s original artist, Zan Goodman”. Adding info about the shows and the band’s current line up, he goes on “we’ll be playing a limited number of acoustic shows to celebrate … but it will be a bit different this time as the core band now consists of myself and drummer Michael Lerner”.

Which means that longtime multi-instrumentalist Darby Cicci is no longer involved. Don’t worry though, they’ll be getting a few guests in to make up the numbers. “Though we’ve pared down for the time being”, he says, “these shows will feature some old friends and guests, and together we’ll perform ‘Hospice’ in its entirety. We’re truly looking forward to revisiting these old songs in a new light”.

Here are some dates:

19 Apr: Leeds, Belgrave Music Hall
20 Apr: Manchester, The Dancehouse Theatre
21 Apr: Glasgow, St Luke’s
23 Apr: London, Union Chapel
