Low-key 10-piece (can you be low-key with 10 band members?) tour dates already up, on sale Sept 18th
October 19th - Los Angeles, CA - The Theatre at Ace Hotel October 22nd - New York, NY - Town Hall October 26th - London, UK - Shepherds Bush Empire October 30th - Berlin, DE - Tempodrom November 2nd - Paris, FR - La Cigale November 4th - Milan, IT - Fabrique And there's another Soulsavers album soon afterwards as well
I can! Sort of, anyway. I did an interview with Rich Machin back in March where this other record was revealed (although, as it's now Autumn, isn't out in the Summer anymore) and the conversation then turned to general other stuff that may or may not happen in the (then) future, including the Gahan record which has now been officially announced. nobody read it back then
So they have a instrumental album that will come out at some stage. Sounds good to me. Do you know who the Name was that they recorded stuff with? I'm guessing if you do you're not at liberty to say who. I am happy to hear that another collaboration with Mark is something they have discussed.
I got a reply, didn't say if I got an answer! It's one of those things where I should have followed up on something more positive (who they were roping in next or what was planned with the 2 previous male vocalists, both alluded to)... Whoever it is, I'm fairly sure the track'll surface, and said artist's bellendery will pass unnoticed.

Hi, casual Mark Lanegan but major Depeche Mode fan here. I have a question: do you guys think that there's a chance that Mark might show up on one of the Soulsavers gigs? In 2012, Rich Machin and Dave Gahan said that they wanted to do a special Soulsavers anniversary gig (see here: onewhiskey.proboards.com/thread/4371/possibly-off-soulsavers-feat-mark), but that never happened. I'm sure Dave Gahan would love it if Mark popped up during one or two songs. What do you think?
I don't think it's happening this time (Mark would have been in London doing a song or 2 the day before the Soulsavers show which would have been a lovely coincidence but he's since pulled out) but the interview I did with Rich back in March certainly hints at future goings-on with all 3 main vocalists in the future.
And while I'm here - US West-coasters, and other various insomniacs, unemployed and cat burglary-types will be pleased to note that the LA show on Monday night will be live streamed by Yahoo.
What a gig. Weird to see the Soulsavers with a frontman who is the complete polar opposite of Mark when it comes to moving about. Great to see the lineup they have now, which is essentially as "classic lineup" for the band that they can have with the notable exception of Steve Gullick. Backing singers were probably the highlight, as they were flawless throughout (same on the record too). Not a big DM fan (woefully in the minority there, as the Black Swarm picked up almost all the night's tickets on a presale), but the encores - Dirty Sticky Floor, Condemnation and Walking In My Shoes - were terrifyingly good.
