» AS YET UNTITLED ALBUM SET FOR AUGUST RELEASE
This winter, original members of Ben Folds Five (Ben Folds, Darren Jessee, Robert Sledge) will return to the United Kingdom for the first time since Christmas 1999. They will be playing at least 9 shows across the UK and Ireland. The tour is scheduled to begin in Bournemouth on November 23.
Ben, Robert and Darren first got back together last summer to record three new songs for a career retrospective 3-CD set released in October of last year. Finding it to be fun and feeling that old magic, the three original members decided to go the distance and record a full new album at Ben’s Nashville studio earlier this year.
The reunited band will debut this summer in the States playing just 4 major gigs in June at Mountain Jam in upstate New York, Chastain Park in Atlanta, the Bonnaroo festival, and wrapping up at Milwaukee SummerFest. Following the upcoming August release of the album, Ben Folds Five will play a full North American tour in September-October, drop down to Australia and then begin the UK/Ireland run of dates.
