PJ Harvey’s has just announced two summer tour dates in the United States, her first time here in five years. The British songstress’ concerts, which will also feature her nine-piece band, are scheduled to take place on August 16 at New York’s Terminal 5 and August 18 at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. (in the venues’ respective time zones).

The upcoming live appearances are birthed from a live experience itself: The Hope Six Demolition Project, Harvey’s ninth album, was recorded in public view at London’s Somerset House.
