A new album, a film and a tour: Melissa Auf Der Maurthe former bassist of Hole and Smashing Pumpkins, didn't miss a thing this time. It will be three stages Italian, namely on 25, 26 and 27 August in Conegliano Veneto, Milan and Bologna respectively.
'Out of Our Minds' is his third proper solo album and, a few months after its release, it is now accompanied by the film of the same name, which will be premiered at the Conegliano and Milan dates.
The 28-minute short film is conceived and directed by Melissa herself and completes the artistic concept initiated by the album.
The Canadian musician has been missing from Italy since last year when she took part in the Roman bass festival at the Auditorium. He arrived this time with his band consisting of guitarists Adam Michael Tymn and Christopher Sorensen and drummer Patrick Luc Sayers.
Melissa Auf Der Maur launched her solo career in 2003, after having been a mainstay of Courtney Love's Hole from '97 to '99, with whom she recorded the best-seller 'Celebrity Skin', and since 2000 of the Smashing Pumpkins, alongside her old friend and mentor Billy Corghan.
