As we learned from last week’s Coachella announcement, Throbbing Gristle are still alive and kicking. In fact, between the recently released The Thirty-Second Annual Report of Throbbing Gristle and what appears to be a forthcoming North American tour, the legendary British group appears to be busy fellows these days.

What’s that? Yes, we said a forthcoming North American tour, or at least that’s what The Daily Swarm is currently reporting. If the rumors hold true, Throbbing Gristle will perform a number of one offs around its April 19th appearance at Coachella, including one at New York’s Brooklyn Masonic Temple, which will mark the band’s first ever performance in the Big Apple.

04/16 – Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple
04/19 – Indio, CA @ Coachella Music Festival
04/23 – San Francisco, CA @ Grand Regency Ballroom
