(CelebrityAccess) — Psychedelic cowpunk pioneers Meat Puppets announced that they have reunited their original lineup (Chris & Curt Kirkwood with Derrick Bostrom on drums) and plan to release their first new material as the original trio since 1995.
The new album, Dusty Notes, will debut on March 9th via Megaforce Records and the Puppets have already released a pair of singles, Warranty, and Nine Pins, into the wild.
Dusty Notes also features keyboardist Ron Stabinsky, and Curt’s son Elmo, who has performed on the guitar with the band since 2011.
As well, the album will be accompanied by a tour featuring the band’s original lineup.
The band has been hinting at just such a reunion since 2017 when all three of the original members appeared on stage during their induction into the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame.
The tour kicks off on April 4th at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA and wraps up on May 18th at White Eagle Music Hall in Jersey City, NJ. Neil Hamburger, All Souls, Sumo Princess, and Stephen Maglio will provide support on select dates.
