Kim Gordon has confirmed another first in a four-decade career as a creative pioneer in the realms of art, music, literature and fashion: her first-ever international headlining solo tour.
The NO HOME TOUR follows the Fall 2019 release of the Sonic Youth and Body/Head founding member and literary and visual arts icon’s innovative and critically acclaimed solo debut, No Home Record (Matador). This marks the first time ever that Gordon will be touring solo and performing songs from No Home Record live. No Home Tour will launch at London’s 6 Music Festival closely followed by a Music Keynote Address at SXSW in Austin, TX featuring Kim in conversation with New York Times bestselling author Rachel Kushner. The international tour resumes in May with stops in the UK, Europe, and North America into September.
Gordon’s touring band will consist of a cast of luminaries, featuring Kim on guitar on vocals, Yves Rothman as music director, Sarah Register on guitar, Emily Retsas on bass, and Sterling Laws on drums.
In advance of No Home Record’s release, the legendary musician and multi-disciplinary artist collaborated with Berlin-based artist and filmmaker Loretta Fahrenholz to create a short video series. The collection includes the official videos for “Murdered Out” and “Sketch Artist,” as well as shorts for “Paprika Pony” and “Don’t Play It” with more to be released.
