Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.

As a special gift, subscribers will receive an exclusive Tori Amos bookmark featuring photography by Loren Haynes and design by the fanzine’s art editor, Jessica Stanford. Here’s some of what’s included in the issue:

Lisa reports that the June/July issue of Bust (the issue with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover story) includes a Tori quote in “SheBonics—Out of the Mouths of Babes”, a regular column of the magazine. This issue’s column features quotes from women in music. Tori talks about how her work has been affected by her daughter Tash. Others quoted in the column include Julianne Moore, Liza Minnelli, Madonna, and Alison Goldfrapp.
Thanks to Lorna for letting us know that Tori’s quote was lifted from the RollingStone.com Q&A:
“I didn’t want her looking and hearing me and thinking, ‘Oh my God, that’s a scary lady!’”

Martian Engineering has redesigned their website. It now includes more details, sections, and photos, including two artist renderings of the new residential facility block. Lots of other nifty stuff there as well. You can buy a Martian mug and pick up a used Tascam DA-88 8-Channel Digital Recorder while you’re at it. Sweet! (Go Bude Blues!)
(Thanks to Saar for sending this in.)
Matt Chamberlain has posted that recording on Tori’s next album will be starting as soon as next week!
In his June 2nd news update, Matt writes:
Just packed up and and shipped a bunch of drums to be sent out to Cornwall England for next week when I start recording the new Tori Amos record—lots of recording and learning going on…...
Thanks to Robert Schrader for bring this to our attention.
And, just to recap the little we know about the new record (as all of this predates Undented), the first whiff of a new album came up in June 2005 when Tori played a new song durng the soundcheck of the Bonn stop on the Original Sinsuality tour. A couple months later, she confirmed in an In Newsweekly interview that she was working on new material but that the earliest it would be released would be 2007. Tori divulged more on XM Artist Confidential saying that the “warrior woman” inside her would come out more on the next record. Finally, in an interview Rolling Stone posted at the end of March, she talked a little about how the next record appeared to be a different new chapter and that we “hadn’t felt this Tori in a while.”
