    They added a 9 date NA leg for May/early June. No reschedule/makeup for that cancelled Tampa date though which has me both heartbroken and looking at flight costs to other cities because I still haven’t been able to see this damn band live.

    May 22 - Anaheim, CA - Honda Center
    May 24 - Sacramento, CA - Golden 1 Center
    May 27 - San Antonio, TX - AT&T Center
    May 29 - Tulsa, OK - BoK Center
    June 1 - Chicago, IL - United Center
    June 3 - Philadelphia, PA - Wells Fargo Center
    June 6 - Brooklyn, NY - Barclays Center
    June 9 - Boston, MA - TD Garden
    June 11 - Toronto, ON - Air Canada Centre

    First ever DM show in Oklahoma. First shows in 17 years for Sacramento and Philadelphia. 13 years for San Antonio.

    Really too bad they didn't go to NOLA and Tampa after San Antonio, though. That's really crummy of them to come back to the States and yet not make Tampa up. You'd think it would've been a priority.. I do recommend catching them though, if you can.

    Ultra is a wonderful album. Contrary to previous efforts, there are no meticulously engineered layers of sounds or atmosphere buildups, everything is just 4 tracks loud from the beginning to end without any dynamics. It's quite primitive and I like it. :-)

    Sweet, when do the tickets go on sale for the US leg? I haven't seen DM since 2009 and would love to break that streak

    So, for whatever reason, Yahoo news had this gem in their feed. Way too funny and I've never seen it before tonight:

    I saw that video earlier today. What the fuck? Man, I can't believe Dave remembered that as I don't blame him and the band for not wanting to revisit that video. They admitted that the video was the moment that made them realize to never do that ever again.

    he GENERALLY looks like a dork... only really looked "cool" when the band got huge and he turned to drugs.

    the chicken video is my favorite thing they've ever done.

    Put on Spirit for the first time in a year. This album is fucking great. Best album since Playing The Angel. Really dark, no ballady shit, no pop or cringeworthy attempts at blues. Maybe I wasnt in the mood to listen to it last year when I dismissed it after one listen and they did themselves no favors by releasing the worst song on the album as the lead single but this record stands alongside Ultra and PTA as the 2 best post Alan Wilder albums

    I was just coming in here to say something almost exactly the same, although I probably wouldn't put it all the way up there with PTA (one of my favorite DM albums), but maybe after a few more listens?

    I find myself wondering why I dismissed it so quickly the first time through.

    Dave added his vocals to Goldfrapp's "Ocean" for the deluxe edition of last year's Silver Eye. He sounds great on it:

    PTA might even be my favorite DM album period, but Ultra and Violator put up a pretty good fight. Spirit has some really nice songs - I particularly and genuinely love Scum, You Move, and No More (This Is the Last Time). It's really a shame that they haven't played a lot of songs from Spirit live. But that's been a trend with their last several albums, actually. It gives the impression that they're not even all that confident or happy with what they're putting out.

    That's weird, the last time I listened to Spirit I definitely heard ballads, attempts at blues and of course pop (because DM is a pop band in the first place).
