For the last few years World Party has just been a whisper on the lips of music fans, a distant but still sharp memory lingering on as a result of a string of extraordinary albums. The band’s 1987 debut, Private Revolution, charted in the U.S. with the single “Ship of Fools”, and band leader and singer/songwriter Karl Wallinger followed up that triumphant success with Goodbye Dumbo. That sophomore release was named Q’s Album of the Year Award in 1990, and spawned the singles “Message in the Box” and “Way Down Now”. Bang! followed, kept from the #1 position in the U.K. charts only by REM. Then Egyptology and, in a limited British release, Dumbing Up.

Following a brain aneurysm, the lost of his band and his record label, Karl and World Party have returned with a refurbished version of Dumbing Up and their first tour dates in ages. Following an appearance at South by Southwest earlier this year, World Party have announced a series of dates that will see the band bring its unforgettable, brilliant pop—an amalgamation of influences that include the Beatles, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and the Beach Boys—back into the limelight.
