As previously reported, glam rock and punk rock pioneers New York Dolls’ new album, Cause I Sez So, hits music stores on May 5, which aside from 11 brand new tracks produced by Todd Rundgren, also means a slew of new tour dates.
Yes, after tackling South By Southwest last month, the lone surviving members, David Johansen on vocals and Sylvain Sylvain on guitar are joined by Steve Conte on guitar, Brian Delaney on drums and Sami Yaffa on bass, will hit America between May and June.
But before all of the above can go down, the Dolls must take to John Varvatos on Bowery, aka the store that now fills the spot where CBGB used to be, for a private show on May 5. Punk rock!
