Throwing Muses Tour Dates

Formed in the 1980's by Kristin Hersh and her half-sister Tanya Donnelly, Throwing Muses became the first American band to be signed to the 4AD label in 1986. Probably their best-known album, The Real Ramona was released in 1991, spawning two minor hit singles, Counting Backwards and Not Too Soon, which characterised their moody, acoustic-ambient sound. Shortly afterwards Tanya left to join The Breeders and then Belly, but Kristin continues the Muses with her new line-up.
