On the surface it's probably one of the most unlikely pairings you could imagine. The dark and menacing baritone that is Mark Lanegan (Queens of the Stone Age, Screaming Trees, Gutter Twins), and the soft angelic voice of Isobel Campbell(Belle and Sebastien), but somehow it's worked. It's worked so well in fact that the pair recently came out with their second effort, Sunday At Devil Dirt. The sophomore album which has been out overseas in the UK and Europe since May, continues to see the duo explore their rootsy alt-country, folk and blues sounds, similar to their '06 debut, 'Ballad Of The Broken Seas' which received wide spread acclaim.
The pair had yet to bring their live show to the US in support of 'Sunday at Devil Dirt', but it's been announced that they will soon be performing in the States together, with three dates scheduled just next month in NY and California.
Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan tour dates:
May 27 New York, NY Webster Hall
May 30 San Francisco, CA Bimbo’s
May 31 Los Angeles, CA The El Rey
