Azure Ray US Tour kicks off in Portland Tonight

arOrenda Fink and Maria Taylor are once again touring and recording as Azure Ray. Following a one off show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles this past November, Azure Ray are planning their first run of US dates in over five years. The tour starts tonight in Portland and runs through Omaha on July 24, where they will play a free outdoor show with Cursive and Flowers Forever.

Orenda Fink has spent the time off from Azure Ray recording a solo record (Invisible Ones, 2005), while also forming two separate band projects, Art In Manila (Set the Woods on Fire, 2007) and O+S (O+S, 2009), all released via Saddle Creek. Maria Taylor has released two solo records for Saddle Creek (11:11, 2005 and Lynn Teeter Flower, 2007) and one for Nettwerk (LadyLuck, 2009).

Following the tour, Orenda and Maria plan to use the fall and winter months to begin writing and recording the fourth Azure Ray full-length for a tentative 2010 release.
