Meat Puppets announces new string of tour dates

on July 30, 2009, 11:30am

It’s one thing for the Meat Puppets to rise from the ashes and give the public a story to cheer about. It’s another thing when the Arizona outfit refuses to milk it for all it’s worth and instead hit the road like men half their age, and with a ferocity and skill set like never before.

The brothers Kirkwood, both nearing 50, will start slow with a dozen gigs in September, break for much of October (unless they decide to further destroy themselves with a slew of other dates), and slam through nearly a show a day for November. Of course, all of this will be in support of the recently released Sewn Together.

Those looking for a Meat Puppets fix until then should check out ABC’s Amplified web show. While logic dictates ABC is anything but a purveyor of music, anchor/indie music fan Dan Harris interviewed the band and delved deep into their abusive past and then, like many of us, began looking forward with fanboy ferocity to their bright future.

Tickets for select dates will be available via Ticketmaster.com.
