Tricky Taps Whale For U.S. Tour

Trip-hop guru Tricky has tapped Swedish dance rock outfit Whale to open on his U.S. tour, which kicks off next month in South Carolina.

The Tricky/Whale double bill gets rolling in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on November 7, and will traverse the States before wrapping up in Los Angeles a month later.

The two have teamed up before, as Tricky leant vocals to Whale’s 1995′s “We Care” album. This time around, Tricky is promoting his latest effort, “Angels With Dirty Faces,” while Whale is trying to drum up support for “All Disco Dance Must End In Broken Bones.”
