Shilpa Ray Announce New Album and Spring Tour

 

Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers are back and will be starting off a busy early 2011 with a new full length record, Teenage and Torture, out January 18th on Knitting Factory Records. Ray, an Indian-American who grew up in a working class family in Princeton Junction, New Jersey, has made something of a name for herself turning her much-talked about alienation in to startling, bluesy rock n’ roll; even Nick Cave has stated he’s a fan. The band’s fall tour was cancelled and they must be eager to get back on the road: they’ve planned a pretty staggering 28 show run in just 31 days with Acid Mothers Temple starting on the West Coast in March and running through Canada and the Northeast before stopping in Austin in late April.

You can find the full list of dates below, as well as stream the second MP3 to be shared from the new record, “Heaven in Stereo”.
