As you can see in the calendar section, most of the 2005 US Geek tour dates have been announced. A few more to come. The lineup is very nice once again. Unfortunately the Locust will not be with us on all the dates. They actually have morals and won't play Clear Channel venues. Fantômas on the hand are whores and go where the money is!
We need to let you know, once again, that if your city is not listed, it does not mean the bands did not want to go to your city, and it does not mean that we hate your city. It simply means that there was not a club in your city that made a good offer for the tour. The bands don't choose the clubs, the clubs decide to make offers or not. Bitch at your local clubs, not at us or the bands. We love you Ft. Wayne!!!!!
Fantômas are looking into a European tour to start in June and exploring options for Australia and South America too! Stay tuned! Look for other Ipecac bands in your area as well. Isis! Dälek! Guapo! and more!!!!!
At Ipecac, it's ALL on the road in 05!!!!
Check out the calendar section for tour dates by Isis & Dälek!!!!!
Coming soon, it is true, the Geek Tour returns to the US in April with Fantômas, the Locust and Trevor Dunn's Trio Convulsant sharing the stage!!!!! Sick, huh? Dates coming soon!!!
Proud to announce that Dälek will be part of the tsunami relief benefit at the Virgin megastore in Times Square in NYC on Jan 20th. They will go on at 6:30 pm. Also slated to play are Dillinger Escape Plan and others. Help out and enjoy some good music.
Hey, you live in New York City and need something to do on New Years Eve? How about Mike Patton and John Zorn at the Knitting Factory? They will be playing 2 sets. One at 7pm and one at 10pm. Tickets are $30 for the early show, $35 for the late one and tickets are very limited! Now THAT is how to ring in the new year, or at the very least leave some ringing in your ears.

Hey US Melvins fans! It is your chance to experience the live movie soundtrack Melvins show. Check it out:
Underground Filmmaker Cameron Jamie Explores Dark Suburban Rituals in Films Set to a Live Score by The Melvins, Dec. 4, UCLA Live
"Not documentaries in any familiar sense-the films are anthropological, but they're also intense immersive experiences, especially if seen with the roiling live accompaniment from heavy metal minimalists, the Melvins." -Time Out (London)
LOS ANGELES- In three films to be screened at UCLA Live, American artist and underground filmmaker Cameron Jamie documents quirky and sometimes disturbing suburban rituals-from L.A.'s backyard wrestling ("BB," 2000), to America's obsession with Halloween ("Spook House," 2003), to Austria's curious preoccupation with a menacing yuletide beast called the Krampus ("Kranky Klaus," 2003). Set to a powerful live score by the legendary post-punk band, The Melvins, this event takes place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4 at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus, and will run approximately one hour with no intermission. For tickets call 310-825-2101, visit www.UCLALive.org or contact Ticketmaster.
Nov 30th is a big day around here.

Well it's not one our releases, but certainly a release that deserves a shout out. The much anticipated Jello Biafra & the Melvins collaboration "Never Breathe What You Can't See" is in stores now. Jello is back at the top of his game with a pretty damn good backing band. This release is from our pals at Alternative Tentacles Records. Check it out!
