Calexico will play a show at Dublin's Vicar Street on 15 April as part of their 5-date tour of the UK and Ireland.

The tour will be preceded on 12 April by the release of an EP, 'Black Heart'.

The title track is taken from last year's acclaimed album 'Feast Of Wire' and features a number of exclusive b-sides, including remixes by Gotan Project and Jazzanova.

The CD single will also include a live performance of 'Black Heart' filmed at The Barbican in London during the Further Beyond Nashville Festival in November 2002.

This performance is also included as part of a forthcoming Calexico DVD, 'Calexico Live At The Barbican: World Drifts In', which is due for release in late May.
