If a band’s frontman readily shows his gentials on stage, then they probably have no qualms against making fans wait for announcements. Four months after Austin, TX noise-rock pioneers Scratch Acid hinted at a U.S. reunion tour, the band has finally unveiled a series of shows for this November and December. Cock teases, the whole bunch of ’em.
Starting November 1st in Atlanta, GA, the group will play in North Carolina, Washington, DC, Toronto, ON, and Chicago, IL before heading to the UK for their Jeff Mangum-curated ATP gig. Afterward, they’ll hit the U.S. again for a three-show run that wraps up on December 17th in Seattle, WA. Yow also hinted at more shows to be announced shortly, so stay tuned for those to be announced when the band feel good and ready.
Peep the entire tour schedule below. And for a taste of things to come, check out the band’s live cut of “Cannibal” from a September 16th, 2006 performance at The Showbox in Seattle, WA.
