Evil Presidentes, mastermixer extraordinaire has debuted a new mix.

Over the years we've shared several mixes from Ireland's premiere DJ, including mixes featuring Depeche Mode, David Bowie, and other brilliant post-punk artists. Earlier this month he created a breezy yacht rock mix for Classified Records in Dundalk, Ireland. Though the mix is a bit of a departure from the some of the artists profiled on this blog, it's completely smooth and fun and ends with one of the best songs ever!

Morrissey announced a US tour.

Suede (aka The London Suede) and Manic Street Preachers announced a North American tour.

The tour is a co-headline tour - much like the New Order/Pet Shop Boys tour which launches this week, Suede and Manic Street Preachers will rotate their sets each night. Suede will be the closing act on the first date; the Manics will close the next night.

Though the tour is all too short, this is certainly huge news for fans of both bands. While Manic Street Preachers have toured the US a few years ago, it's been over 25 years since Suede played the US! Suede are thrilled to return to the US and especially excited to play with Manic Street Preachers. Brett Anderson revealed in a statement:

"I can't think of a band I'd rather share a stage with than Manic Street Preachers...they have long been an inspiration to us, and I know there are thousands of Suede fans who feel the same. It's nearly 30 years siince we last played together and I think these shows are going to be something really special."

Tickets for the tour go on sale this week. View the tour itinerary below.

Suede return with their acclaimed new album Autofiction this Friday, September 16th, meanwhile Manic Street Preachers just reissued a 21st anniversary edition of their 2001 record Know Your Enemy.

The highly anticipated album A State Of Grace is The House Of Love's first album since 2013's She Paints Words In Red and the first album to feature the band's new lineup which is Chadwick and a new set of musicians.
