The Breeders to Release New Album in May
Sold Out Tour Runs Through March
February 11, 2002
Alternative rock band, the Breeders -- perhaps best known for their '90s hit song, "Cannonball" -- are releasing their first new album since 1993's Last Splash. The band's long awaited new effort, titled Title TK, is scheduled to hit stores May 21.
Originally a side project between Kim Deal of the Pixies and Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses (and eventually Belly), the Breeders became a real band quite quickly as each performers' main gig dried up.
Kim Deal recruited her sister Kelley Deal for the original lineup. And now the sisters, along with Jose Medeles and Fear members Richard Presley and Mando Lopez, make up the new lineup. The band's current U.S. tour -- which runs through the end of March -- has sold out nearly every venue.
The new album, long rumored to be in the making, was helmed by producer Steve Albini, who engineered records for the Pixies and the Breeders in the past, as well as Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, and Bush, among others. Plans are also in the works for the Breeders to tour the U.S. this coming summer. Stay tuned.
