Tori Amos Confirms New Album & Tour
Tori Amos has new music on the way and the initial dates for her first world tour since 2014 are locked in. The countdown is on for September!
Native Invader is due out Sept. 8 as the follow-up to 2014’s Unrepentant Geraldines.
Amos offered fans the following insight about the new album:
“The songs on Native Invader are being pushed by the Muses to find different ways of facing unforeseen challenges and in some cases dangerous conflicts. The record looks to Nature and how, through resilience, she heals herself. The songs also wrestle with the question: what is our part in the destruction of our land, as well as ourselves, and in our relationships with each other?
“In life there can be the shock of unexpected fires, floods, earthquakes, or any cataclysmic ravager – both on the inside and outside of our minds. Sonically and visually, I wanted to look at how Nature creates with her opposing forces, becoming the ultimate regenerator through her cycles of death and re-birth. Time and time again she is able to renew, can we find this renewal for ourselves?”

The tour kicks off a few days ahead of the album release with a Sept. 6 gig in Cork, Ireland. The first leg of the tour is scheduled throughout Europe, including performances in France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Norway and Germany. The last confirmed stop is Oct. 6 in Glasgow, Scotland.
Presales for select dates begin April 26. Tickets go on sale to the general public April 28.
By referring to the outing as a world tour, rather than a European excursion, it seems safe to say that more gigs will be announced. Stay tuned.
