Leeds’ own industrial groove machine The Sisters of Mercy have announced details of their first tour of the US in 14 years.

The band, who have released three studio albums since forming in 1980 – First and Last and Always (1985), Floodland (1987) and Vision Thing (1990) last performed in North America in December 2008.

The 19-date tour – the new shows are in addition to the band's previously announced appearance at the Sick New World Festival in Las Vegas and an already sold-out show in Los Angeles – will kick off in Silver Spring, Maryland on May 10 and end a month later in Denver,  Colorado. The tour then continues with four further dates in Central America and South America. Full dates below.

Ticket for the US dates will go on sale Friday February 10 at 10am.

While there is no new Sisters releases to report – and unlikely to be, ever – The Sisterhood’s five-track Gift – a side project featuring songs which were recorded for Sisters of Mercy’s second album – has been reissued on CD via Cadiz. Cassette and vinyl editions are available to pre-order now and will ship in March.
