Bristol trip-hop legends Massive Attack are taking their show on the road. Today the outfit announced a handful of dates for their upcoming Mezzanine XX1 tour featuring Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins with visuals by Robert Del Naja. The multi-city jaunt (dates can be found here) is in honor of the 21st anniversary of the group’s seminal album, Mezzanine, which Fraser appears on.
Robert Del Naja says of the tour: “It’s going to be a one off piece of work; our own personalized nostalgia nightmare head trip.”
In addition to the tour, the band have issued a remastered version of their aforementioned seminal 1998 third album. The special edition features eight previously unheard Mad Professor remixes from the original 1998 sessions on three slabs of colored vinyl. This specially designed heat-sensitive box includes a book featuring exclusive images by Nick Knight and Del Naja. The package will also be available on 2CD deluxe and digital.
