The original Zombies lineup splintered in late 1967, several months before their classic Odessey and Oracle LP arrived in stores. This fall, the surviving former members of the band will finally get their chance to tour behind the album.

The band made the announcement on Facebook, explaining that the current Zombies lineup — led by co-founding keyboardist Rod Argent and singer Colin Blunstone alongside guitarist Tom Toomey, drummer Steve Rodford and ex-Argent bassist Jim Rodford — will be joined by original bassist Chris White and drummer Hugh Grundy, who will serve as "special guests" for sets that will include full performances of Odessey and Oracle.

The tour comes after a handful of sporadic reunions in recent years, beginning with a one-off 1997 performance in support of the Zombie Heaven box set. The complete original lineup last performed in 2004 at a benefit for the band's guitarist, Paul Atkinson, who died in the spring of that year; in 2008, the surviving members reunited again for a series of 40th anniversary Odessey and Oracle shows that were later commemorated with a live CD/DVD release.

"It has been five decades since the original Zombies' lineup last toured the States. Our final album together was released in 1968, but we never got a chance to perform it live for our American fans," notes the tour announcement. "Whether you missed us in the 1960s, or just discovered us yesterday, we hope you can join us on this journey today."
