In February, they embark on their first European tour in over 20 years, performing all their classic hits including "The Safety Dance", "I Got The Message", "Pop Goes The World", "I Like", "Living In China", plus songs from their critically acclaimed new studio album "Love In The Age Of War."


The European tour starts Friday 1st February at the London's Islington o2 Academy (only UK show), followed by dates across GermanyAustriaDenmark, and Sweden. Led by front man, lead singer and songwriter IvanDoroschuk, in 2011, MWH performed a breakout show at SXSW, followed by an extensive 2012 North American tour alongside the B52s and Human League.


Produced by Dave "Rave" Ogilvie (Skinny PuppyMarilyn Manson), Love In The Age of War marks MWH's their first studio album in 10 years, and includes ten original songs.  


Since forming in the late 70's, the band has released six studio albums – having songs featured on hit TV series such as Glee, The Simpsons, Futurama and Family Guy.  Their 1980's hit "The Safety Dance" reached Top 10 in the US, the UK and 25 other countries around the world.  In 1983, they picked up a Grammy nomination for Best Group.  If you think you can still "dance if you want to," then Love In The Age of War will give you 10 more reasons to get started.
