Industrial goth overlords the Sisters Of Mercy have announced a US tour. The Leeds legends will kick off their run of dates at The Fillmore in Detroit, MI, on September 14, and wrap things up at History in Toronto, Canada, on October 26.

The tek marks a swift return to North America for the band, who last year completed their first run of US shows since the Ocean To Ocean tour in 2008. 

The band line-up for the tour includes Sisters mainstay Andrew Eldritch assisted by longtime guitarist/bassist Ben Christo, guitarist Kai, and former Ghost, Ugly Kid Joe, Ginger Wildheart, Terrorvision and Eurleka Machines man Chris Catalyst. Support will comes from Blaqk Audio, the dark-pop project put together by AFI members Davey Havok and Jade Puget.

The general sale for tickets begins this Friday (May 10).

Sisters Of Mercy have not released an album for 34 years, although the prospect of an election victory for Donald Trump in 2016 was enough to give Eldritch some food for thought. 

"What is happening in America is an ever more bizarre circus, and the population doesn’t seem to realise just how much it’s being taken for a ride," he told Classic Rock. "I can tell you one thing: If Donald Trump actually does become President, that will be reason enough for me to release another album. I don’t think I could keep quiet if that happened."
