Fans of ionic alt-rock band, 10,000 Maniacs, are in for a treat this summer, as the band announce a US Tour to support their new album ‘Twice Told Tales’, which is released today. 

The new album is a full-length collection of traditional folk songs from the British Isles, which have been recast in the modern neo-folk sound that the Maniacs pioneered in the early 80s.

Some of the tracks from ‘Twice Told Tales’, such as ‘Do You Love An Apple’, will already be familiar to fans as the band have been performing them as part of their live repertoire since the early days of their career. 

The tour will also see the band performing some new tracks from the album, along with many fan favourites. 

10,000 Maniacs vocalist Mary Ramsey will joined on stage for a few select dates by founding member, guitarist John Lombardo, with whom she enjoyed success as part of the duo John & Mary.

‘Twice Told Tales’ is available on CDVinyl and Digital.
