These announcements come on the heels of major news from Sarah McLachlan last week. The multi-platinum and Grammy-Award winning singer/songwriter is scheduled to release The Laws Of Illusion, her first studio album of new material in seven years, on June 15 (Nettwerk Records), just weeks before the Lilith tour launch.
