The Eden House Tour dates are

The Eden House are a musical collective who’ve collaborated with a wide variety of vocalists and musicians and have released three albums and two mini-albums.
On their new full-length album, Songs For The Broken Ones they’ve worked with Monica Richards on much of the album. An eco-activist veteran of the DC punk scene and sometime Conflict member, she is most known in Europe and the US as half of Faith & The Muse.
Other lead vocalists featured are Lee Douglas of Anathema, Louise Crane, Meg Pettitt and Kelli Ali of Sneaker Pimps. Musicians include Bob Loveday of Penguin Café Orchestra & Van Morrison and Simon Hinkler of The Mission.
The Eden House are built around the core duo of guitarist Stephen Carey and bassist Tony Pettitt of Fields of the Nephilim together with drummer Simon Rippin of The Nephilim.
Here’s a little taster of what you can expect from the forthcoming shows. This was one of several songs recorded live in the studio when Monica Richards was visiting the UK earlier in the year:
They embellish their music with lush layers of violin and diverse female vocals, leading them to be described on Wikipedia as ethereal wave. Without betraying their goth-rock roots, The Eden House expand their horizons working with top musicians from the prog-rock and trip-hop worlds to create their unique fusion sound.
Formed in 2009 they’ve previously attracted calibre collaborators such as Julianne Regan of All About Eve, Amandine Ferrari, Evi Vine, Pink Floyd’s sound engineer Andy Jackson and Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music. They’ve toured and headlined festivals in the UK, Germany, Belgium and Poland.
