Nothing I am going to do is going to explain Dead Can Dance if you dont know who they are.
My guess is you have heard their music or at least the voices of their music in a few different films along with other things.
Most noticably one of their more powerful songs played out over the crushing end of The Mist.

Anyway According to a press release, the album consists of “seven movements representing different facets of the Dionysus myth and his cult.”

New album in November with a Tour in 2019: New Dead Can Dance Album

Very nice, thank you for this.
I honestly don't pay attention to music much anymore, but I've been feeling an itch to find something new and I used to listen to these guys a lot back in the day. It's nice to know they're putting out something new.

Excellent!

Love their music. Saw their concert in the Bay Area (Oakland, CA) years ago.

I wish they were coming stateside for their tour.

They’re one of the groups where being 40 in the audience is young!
I forgot about The Mist. Certain scenes from Gladiator wouldn’t be the same without Lisa’s voice.
Toward the Within used to be my go to for woohoo with the ladies.

If they take the same tour cycle they did 6 years ago after their last release they will hit the US after the European leg.

For all the films her voice has been used in I always go back to Black Hawk Down and the duet she did with Denez Prignet. The feel of the song has a very powerful yet familiar to DCD fans feel to it while feeling like they were both singing a song that could have come from Tolkien.

"Gortoz a ran" translated to "I'm waiting"

I was waiting, waiting for a long time
In the dark shadow of grey towers
In the dark shadow of grey towers

In the dark shadow of rain towers
You will see me waiting forever
You will see me waiting forever

One day it will come back
Over the lands, over the seas

The blue wind will return
And take back with it my wounded heart

I will be pulled away by its breath
Far away in the stream, wherever it wishes

Wherever it wishes, far away from this world
Between the sea and the stars

Outside
The storm clouds gathering,
Moved silently along the dusty boulevard.
Where flowers turning crane their fragile necks
So they can in turn
Reach up and kiss the sky.
They are driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye
Someone is calling.
I remember when you held my hand
In the park we would play when the circus came to town.
Look! Over here.
Outside
The circus gathering
Moved silently along the rainswept boulevard.
The procession moved on the shouting is over
The fabulous freaks are leaving town.
They are driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye.
The carnival is over
We sat and watched
As the moon rose again
For the very first time.

Good to see, hope they tour again. Been a huge fan for quite some time now. Almost 30 years - seems hard to believe.

This is the first song I heard by them that blew my mind:



I mean if you think back to then, there was no one (with some exception with the Cocteau Twins) doing anything resembling this. Becoming way ahead of times by going back in time. I remember sitting listening to this song on a cassette player (a walkman?) on a beach just feeling so much emotion from it. So much power/sadness/hope...And oddly finding out soon that all of the words were "nonsense". How brilliant? How amazing to force emotions out of a listener and mean nothing at all except what the listener wants it to mean?

I know Elizabeth Frazier did this as well, but much lighter and dreamlike. Lisa had dark mystery, human condition extreme parameters...What was going on in those days to spawn such creativity that has yet to be matched in any regard?

They will hit the US after that at least that is what they did when the released their last album Anastatis 6 years ago.
Started off in Europe with the release then hit America.

Went nuts and bought the whole set. Too bad they aren't signed/autographed.
