U.K. psychedelic rock outfit Spiritualized, led by frontman Jason "Spaceman" Pierce, will hit the U.S. for its first tour in more than three years. The trek, beginning Oct. 23 in Washington, D.C., and running through Nov. 18 in Dallas, comes in support of the group's latest Arista album "Let It Come Down." The set bowed at No. 3 on the U.K. album chart last month.

Spiritualized's lineup has been drastically overhauled since its last visit to North America, as the support act for Radiohead's "OK Computer" tour. The touring band this time around will feature 13 musicians, a far cry from the 100-piece choir that contributes to "Let It Come Down." How will Pierce make up the difference?

"We won't," he told Billboard last month. "It comes to me in folds, and the show constantly changes. If a song has to be changed radically, we'll do that."

Spiritualized is currently on tour in Europe and will hit Liverpool, England tonight (Oct. 3). That portion of the tour wraps Oct. 17 in Paris.
