Online and worldwide fans can hear the broadcast live directly on the WXPN Philadelphia stream on Thursday, December 15 from 2-4PM ET here: http://www.xpn.org/music-artist/xpn-stream, the show will be archived on NPR later that day: http://www.npr.org/programs/world-cafe/. GARY and his band will kick off a U.K tour beginning Wednesday, December 7. The short trek features a stop at the All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in Minehead, Somerset on Saturday, December 20.

For DEAD SON RISING–a far more experimental and unique album than such previous releases as–Jagged, Pure and Exile–GARY teamed up with longtime collaborator ADE FENTON to co-write and produce the effort.

NUMAN continues to put the finishing touches on his new album for 2012 titled SPLINTER. This summer, he collaborated with Battles for their new single “My Machines,” out now on Warp Records, see video below which also features GARY. No doubt the renewed vigor came partly from his critically acclaimed tour last fall celebrating the 30th anniversary of his seminal album The Pleasure Principle. GARY and his band thrilled sold-out crowds across the U.S. late last year. Expect the group to announce a worldwide tour soon.
