, Staff

Florence and The Machine have revealed plans to return to the United States this fall to continue touring in support of their latest album, Ceremonials. As part of the stateside outing, Florence Welch and company will perform at the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Friday, September 14. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $20 to $42.50, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. English rockers The Maccabees will open the show.

Released last October, Ceremonials debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 and at #1 on Billboard’s Rock and Alternative Albums charts. It also reached #1 in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia. Produced by Paul Epworth (Adele, Kate Nash), the band’s sophomore effort was recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios. It features singles “What the Water Gave Me”, “Shake It Out” and “No Light, No Light”.

“He really pushes you in the studio with what to do and where to go,” said Welch of Epworth in a renter interview with Filter Magazine. “I have a tendency to throw everything at it and am spent, but he says to keep at it and not to just rest on a phrase or word. He’ll constantly have beats or chord sequences. He’s very prolific and tenacious as well because I can be quite dreamy and unfocused.”

Last month, Florence and The Machine released their second live album, MTV Unplugged – A Live Album. It was filmed in December 2011 in New York’s oldest synagogue building, Angel Orensanz Center, with the band being backed by a ten-person choir.

For fans that can’t wait to see Florence and The Machine in Massachusetts, the band will perform at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday. Tickets for the show are available through Ticketmaster for $49.50.
