Dead Can Dance emerged in 1981 as a quartet. The avant-garde rockers from Melbourne, Australia, moved to London to pursue their music career and gain exposure. After signing with record label 4AD, Dead Can Dance released their eponymous debut album in 1984. When 4AD finally signed a distribution deal with Warner, Dead Can Dance started to gain some recognition and followers. Their 1993 album, Into the Labyrinth, entered the Billboard 200 chart at number 122. Three years later, the band released their first number 1 album, Spiritchaser. The 1996 record peaked at number 75 on the Billboard 200 and number 1 on the US World Albums charts.
In 1998, Dead Can Dance disbanded and didn't get back together until 2005. They embarked on an extensive North American tour and worked on writing new music for their subsequent album, Anastasis, released in 2012. The record topped the Billboard World Albums chart and peaked at number 46 on the Billboard 200. Moreover, Anastasis also entered the charts in 12 other countries.
Dead Can Dance performing on U.S. shores is a rare and welcome sight. The last time fans saw them was during their stellar performance at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in 2013. In 2023, the duo composed of Lissa Gerard and Brendan Perry is performing on 17 dates in North America. If you’re a fan of Dead Can Dance, this is your chance to finally see them perform live!
