US pop quintet spawned by New York's gay scene to embark on North American tour following release of fourth album
Pop dance quintet the Scissor Sisters are promising fans a Filthy/Gorgeous summer, announcing a North American tour.
The US band, who release their fourth album Magic Hour on 28 May, will officially kick off the 16-date tour in Las Vegas on 15 June, then travel the continent, visiting cities in Canada, before returning to their hometown of New York for a two-night stand at Terminal 5.
The band, which was ‘spawned by the scuzzy, gay nightlife scene of New York’ and took their name from a sexual position between two women, release their new Calvin Harris produced single Only The Horses on 13 May.
Speaking about the forthcoming new album, frontman Jake Shears said: 'It was a pretty collaborative effort. It’s really different from Night Work. That was almost a concept album.
'This one is a bit more of a grab-bag of music – it’s closest to our first record in terms of variety and that board-game aspect where you’re not quite sure where you’re going to land next.'
Pre-sale tickets for the tour go on sale today, with general sale tickets available from tomorrow.
