Freddy Rupert promised that Former Ghosts would tour as a band this autumn and he wasn’t kidding. Hitting the road with Zola Jesus and Xiu Xiu in November, it’ll be the first time Rupert, Nika Roza and Jamie Stewart will play live together.

The trio worked on Former Ghost debut album ‘Fleurs’ without spending any time in the same room, but rather emailing files back and forth across the States. And new album ‘New Love’ – out this autumn – was pieced together in the same way due to Roza’s commitments as Zola Jesus and Stewart’s with Xiu Xiu, but now the three bands will tour on the same bill together, meaning that Former Ghosts’ set will finally be played out by all of those that created it in one go.
