"So far, as a live, breathing, sweaty band, this thing is really nasty," says Eric Drew Feldman, a regular PJ Harvey sideman who contributed keyboards to the album and plays in the touring outfit alongside guitarist Giovanni Ferrario and drummer Jean-Marc Butty.

"I like to change the way I perform from tour to tour, so this is different from what I was doing before," Harvey concedes, before adding, "But then, that's how I am anyway."
