Luscious Jackson Sets Dates For Tour With Cibo Matto

Luscious Jackson is currently in Europe, blazing the promotional trail to support its fourth full-length album, "Electric Honey," but the band is already prepping for a busy summer touring schedule that will include a stint on Lilith Fair and a joint outing with Cibo Matto.

Due out on June 29, "Honey" marks Luscious Jackson's first effort since losing keyboardist Vivian Trimble (see [article id="1431447"]"Vivian Trimble Quits Luscious Jackson"[/article]). To help fill in the harmonious void, Luscious Jackson tapped Blondie's Deborah Harry and folk singer Emmylou Harris to provide some guest vocals -- with Harris singing backup on the first single from the record, "Ladyfingers.

Several of Luscious Jackson's friends and musical compatriots turn up in the Tamra Davis-directed video for "Ladyfingers," including actor John Leguizamo and fellow New York City groovesters Cibo Matto (who just issued their own new album, "Stereo-Type A").

Luscious Jackson has just

announced dates for its tour with Cibo Matto, which is slated to begin almost immediately after the band wraps its two week run on Lilith Fair from July 8 to July 21.
