Jason Pierce has announced that he will be performing more of his Spiritualized – “Acoustic Mainline” shows, this April.
The dates follow on from last autumn’s sold-out tour, when the front man first played a combination of his musical back catalogue, reworked.
Spiritualized-Acoustic Mainlines feature songs from Spaceman 3, Spiritualized as well as other artists. Pierce is accompanied by Spiritualized guitarist Doggen as well as a string quartet and gospel singers.
Jason Pierce has also resumed work mixing the follow-up to the hugely successful Top 5 album, ‘Amazing Grace’, which was postponed last year due to serious illness.
The new album, now due for release in 2007, is described by J Spaceman as being “the work of the devil……with a little guidance from me.”
Pierce’s acoustic ensemble will also be appearing as special guests to Massive Attack on their sold out shows on February 6, 7 and 8. These shows are in support of the Hoping Foundation for Palestinian children.
