Former XLR8R cover star and highly touted DFA disco whiz Andy Butler has shed much of the nine-person band that brought to life his songs written as Hercules & Love Affair, and is set to tour in anticipation of the recently finished follow-up to H&LA’s self-titled debut. Along with permanent Love Affair vocalist Kim Ann Foxman, Butler enlisted the help of three other musicians from Berlin and Chicago to perform as his band around Europe and the US.
