The Pierces, sisters Catherine and Allison, are going gigging with Albert Hammond Jr. at the end of this month during the UK leg of his solo tour. They are supporting their new album, Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge, which will be released in February 2007 on Lizard King Records.
Their live band includes Russell Simins of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Shannon Ferguson of Longwave, Sammy James Jr. of Mooney Suzuki and Ben Bromley of Fischerspooner.
The stunning siblings’ pretty blend of do-wop, blues, and folk music is actually a perfect match for Albert’s quirky pop tunes. Should be a great bill!
