Modern English "Mesh & Lace" Us Tour, New Orleans, W/ Entertainment says
BRITISH NEW WAVE/POST-PUNK INNOVATORS, MODERN ENGLISH, RETURN TO THE US IN MAY TO PERFORM DEBUT RECORD, “MESH & LACE”, FOR THE FIRST TIME

After reuniting in 2009 and a successful US tour in 2013, British post-punk/pop craftsmen Modern English, are proud to announce that they will be returning to the States in May/June for a tour beginning on 5/11 in Seattle at Neumos. Titled the “Mesh & Lace” tour, named after their 1981 debut album, this is the first time that the band, (original founding members, vocalist Robbie Grey; bassist Mick Conroy; guitarist Gary McDowell; and keyboardist Stephen Walker, along with drummer Roy Martin, who originally toured with the band in 1986), will be performing the album in its entirety. The tour also celebrates the soon to be released reissue of Mesh & Lace on CD and Opaque Green Vinyl and 200 Gram vinyl, and the CD and vinyl re-release of After the Snow, both on Drastic Plastic Records. This is the first time the vinyl for Mesh & Lace has been available in the US.

According to bassist Conroy, “It took us 2 weeks to make Mesh & Lace. We didn't really know what we were doing, but knew what we wanted it to sound like. Noisy and pounding, and atmospheric at the same time. I guess these days it’s called 'post punk'. When we play these songs live today, I am reminded of the energy and chaos that
we put down on tape back in early 1981.”
