The Dream Syndicate have announced tour dates for the USA and Europe, running from early June to mid-November. Coming hot on the heels of news of the upcoming Ultraviolet Battle Hymns And True Confessions collection, a first album of new material for Fire Records, it continues a period of renewed activity for the band which began with a busy SXSW schedule in March. It also happens to be the fortieth anniversary of the release of their debut set – The Days Of Wine And Roses – and that’s going to be played in its entirety every night as a part of these shows.

Earlier in the year Fire released a three CD box-set based around their third album Out Of The Grey; it must be a good bet that something similar will be coming down the pipe for The Days Of Wine And Roses.
