Pulp will kick off a brief North American tour, their first in a decade, at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom on Sept. 8th.

The band’s last North America appearance was at Coachella in ‘12. “The songs came back to life and they want to be heard,” noted frontman Jarvis Cocker (pictured) in a statement. “They need to be heard.”

Formed in ’78, Pulp released seven albums over eighteen years. Two mid-90’s efforts: “His ‘n’ Hers” (’94) and “Different Class” (’95) established the band.  Their last effort was ‘01’s “We Love Life.”

Pulp’s bassist, Steve Mackey, died last year at the age of 56. The band is dedicating the tour in his memory.

General tickets go on sale on Friday.
