The Orb announce summer tour dates (2013)

The Orb

Story by Jack Foley

The Orb have announced details of a summer UK tour with appearances at Glastonbury, Brixton Academy and Rough Trade East.

In addition, they’re also releasing a new album in June.

Last year’s stellar collaboration between The Orb and long-time inspiration Lee Scratch Perry unsurprisingly produced more music than one album could handle, so Scratch, Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann are returning in fine style with More Tales From The Orbservatory.

Released on June 3, 2013 on Cooking Vinyl, the set features further excursions from last year’s sessions at the Starhouse studio in Berlin, plus new instrumental versions.

The dates are (all May and June 2013)

26 – The Orb featuring Kakatsitsi – Blind Tiger, Brighton

7 – The Orb (live) in store & album signing – Rough Trade East, London
8 – The Orb @ Playground Festival – Carling Academy, Brixton
