If you're a Spiritualized fan, you have to take your pleasures when you can.

Frontman Jason Pierce is known to take years between records — his latest, And Nothing Hurt, dropped in September, the psych-soul project's first since 2012's Sweet Heart Sweet Light. Somewhat alarmingly, he told The New York Times, "Every time I make a record, I forget everything I’ve learned about how to make a record." He has also said that And Nothing Hurt — a decidedly stripped down record compared to his 1997 breakthrough Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space — could be his last.

Fortunately for Detroit area fans, Spiritualized has announced a 2019 North American tour, with an April 10, 2019 stop at the Royal Oak Music Theatre.

A fan pre-sale begins at 10m a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5 and go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 7. They'll be available here.

In the meantime, here's And Nothing Hurt's "I'm Your Man."
