Dead Can Dance

The Australian ethereal neoclassical duo Dead Can Dance announced their reunion back in May 2011.
They are now offering a free four track EP enititled "Live Happenings - Part 1".

Dead Can Dance formed in Melbourne in August '81 by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry.

The band relocated to London in May '82 and disbanded in '98.
Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance as having an ambient style of world music that "constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty...with African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chants, Middle Eastern mantras, and art-rock."
