It’s been ten years since alternative cabaret two-piece THE DRESDEN DOLLS released new music but now Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione decided to reactivate their band. The duo announced two shows in late August in their hometown Boston as well as in New York City which mark their first official live performances in almost a decade. ‘We are back in action,’ told Palmer Pitchfork in an interview while also stating that those two shows are the only plans they have so far. ‘This is is. These are right now two totally isolated ‘let’s get the band back together’ shows,’ she explains.
Although THE DRESDEN DOLLS haven’t announced any plans for follow-up material to 2006’s Yes, Virginia album Palmer explains that she and Viglione ‘never get together to play shows without surprising people.’ She says new music would be a crucial part of the comeback gigs by explaining: ‘The chances of us just playing old material is zero.’
Hopefully, there’s more on the horizon from these two. NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION will keep you updated.
