Scissor Sisters return with new album, live datesEntertainment News Thursday, May 3rd, 2012
The Scissor Sisters have announced that they will launch their North American tour, June 15, at the Las Vegas House of Blues in support of their forthcoming album, Magic Hour. The outing will include a show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, June 16, and conclude with a two-night stand at Terminal 5 in the band’s hometown of New York City, July 6 and 7.
Set for U.S. release May 29 on Casablanca Records, Magic Hour is the follow-up to 2010’s Night Work, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums Chart and was hailed as “dirty fun” by The New York Times.
“It was a pretty collaborative effort,” says frontman Jake Shears. “It’s really different from Night Work. That was almost a concept album. This one is a bit more of a grab-bag of music – it’s closest to our first record in terms of variety, and that board-game aspect where you’re not quite sure where you’re going to land next.”
The first single from the album, “Only The Horses,” which will be available at all digital retailers beginning May 15, was co-produced with Calvin Harris. “When we wrote ‘Horses,’ I immediately knew that he’d help knock it out of the park,” says Jake.
