The Legendary Pink Dots
Edward Ka-Spel says: Thirty-three years and maybe we got it right this time. We found ourselves a new label  the estimable Metropolis Records from Pennsylvania and are trusting them with the release of The Gethsemane Option which took just over one year to create, produced perhaps 5 radically different mixes for every song and a handsome collection of outtakes that will eventually see the light of day in another project. And now its time to hit the road yet again. We keep telling ourselves that ill be the last tour of America but somehow that continent always lures us back  even (perhaps especially) those weird little places where the audience crunch cockroaches as they stomp to that irresistible beat well, if theyve had a few.

Founded in 1980, the Legendary Pink Dots takes place in the field of experimental and psychedelic music.

The band is fronted by Edward Ka-Spel who doubles as singer and chief lyric writer, but other members including Phil Knight (The Silverman), Erik Drost and Raymond Steeg make up the current lineup of the band. The sound is often made up of a conglomerate of electronics, saxophones, guitars, drums and Ka-Spels distinctive voice and lyrical invention. Side projects of the band include: The Tear Garden (with Cevin Key from Skinny Puppy, Mimir (with Christoph and Andreas Heemann) plus solo ventures.

The story behind the bands name is a source of speculation because Edward has given multiple explanations behind its origins. The most plausible and common explanation traces back to the mysterious pink dots on certain keys of the bands main recording studio piano named Osbert; the dots that can be found at either end of the keys do not make any particular chord or scale pattern and the reason for them remains unknown to this day.

The Pink Dots have influenced a wide range of bands, such as The Dresden Dolls, the Death Party, MGMT, and Skinny Puppy.

LPD have released more than 40 albums, have a devoted worldwide following, and tour frequently.

Sing while you may!
