Although it appears to be in the distant future, Fishbone will be embarking on a month long east coast swing in February 2013! Along with new tour dates, the punk rock legends have also made their 2011 Crazy Glue EP available on vinyl!
After spending the majority of October and November touring throughout Europe, The Pier’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner in 2011 has returned to the United States to finish off the year in their home state of California. Last holiday season, Fishbone and fellow label mates, The Aggrolites blew the doors off of the Sunset Strip’s Key Club, and Fishbone will be back again just three days after Christmas in 2012. However, if you are in the southern California area, and looking to skank on New Years Eve, Fishbone has the ideal NYE bash!
After the holidays, the upcoming winter tour will feature at the very least 14-dates, with more dates and cities announced in the coming weeks. The east coast will receive their dosage of Fishbone, as well as special treatment for “The Sunshine State” with Wholeweat Bread opening up shows in Florida. All of these Fishbone tour dates are in support of their most recent album release Crazy Glue. Going off of that same theme, Fishbone described their most recent US tour as The World’s Most Powerful Adhesive Tour. At this juncture, the upcoming winter tour beginning in February is still without a name. Anyone familiar with Fishbone will certainly see a live show that lives up to, and surpasses, any potential tour title.
On top of touring nearly nonstop this past year, Fishbone has also just announced the availability of Crazy Glue on vinyl at certain record stores and through online outlets. There is only a limited quantity of the 12-inch record from Fishbone, so jump on the opportunity while supplies last!
