Afro-French Cuban musical duo Ibeyi have announced a global headline tour supporting their upcoming album ‘Spell 31’ with stops in North America, the UK and Europe.
Fresh off the release of their single ‘Lavender & Red Roses’ featuring Jorja Smith, twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz have announced a world tour that kicks off September 15 in Los Angeles, California. The duo will be touring all the way till February 2023, when they close the tour in their hometown of Paris.
Find the full list of dates and cities for Ibeyi’s tour below. Fan club pre-sales for all dates excluding festival stops begin today at 10am (April 7) local time on Ibeyi’s website, with ticket sales open to the general public this Friday (April 8) at 10am local time via Ticketmaster.
Speaking to NME in March, Ibeyi said they will tour ‘Spell 31’ with two supporting musicians in their live show, for the first time in the band’s history. “For nearly 10 years [it was] Lisa and I alone on stage,” explained Naomi. “For the first time, we’re going to have a band with [us]. So, there’s going to be four on stage now.”
Ibeyi are set to release their third studio album ‘Spell 31’ on May 6 via XL, and will include their released singles ‘Lavender & Roses’, ‘Sister 2 Sister’ and ‘Made Of Gold’. Longtime collaborator Richard Russells reprises his role as producer for the sisters on ‘Spell 31’, which features collaborations with Pa Salieu and Berwyn among others.
Ibeiyi dropped their previous release, sophomore album ‘Ash’, in 2017. They explored themes of womanhood, activism and racism on the album, which followed the introspective tone of their 2015 self-titled debut album, which focused on familial history, death and origins.
