P.S. just to remind those of you that keep e-mailing, we don't choose where the tours go. The bands play where they get good offers, it is not about which cities they like. Our bands do this for a living not just a hobby. If a club in your town does not make an offer, the bands can't play there. Also we don't do the booking so don't e-mail us.
Time to bring the party to the people! We are putting together the first ever Ipecac travelling road show!! It will feature Tomahawk, the Melvins and either Skeleton Key or Dälek. This tour will be in the US only and should begin late April or early May. If it goes well we hope to take it to other countries eventually. We will post dates as soon as they are confirmed. Stay tuned!
