Meat Puppets announce new album, tour

Phoenix, AZ’s Meat Puppets have announced a new album. Sewn Together will see the light of day May 12th on Megaforce Records. It is the follow up to 2007’s Rise To Your Knees, the band’s first album after reforming. Says Curt Kirkwood:

In the ’80s, we used to just crap this stuff out. Those SST records cost, like, five grand apiece, if that much, and those are the records that made people like us. Now, if I can get away with it, I’ll make a record as cheap as I can and put as little work as I can into it, which is what we did with this one. I don’t like putting a lot time into it. We cut a track, and if we’ve played it halfway right, we’re done with it.

The band will also be heading out on a tour in support of the album.

The Flaming Tsunamis (1999-2009)

CT-based skacore band The Flaming Tsunamis have just announced that, after ten years, they’ll be calling it quits. In a blog posted to the band’s myspace vocalist Andy Tabar states:

As i struggle with feeling let down while at the same time having complete understanding for the situation, i am also excited for the final gasp of the band. We aren’t done yet, we are all still committed to recording our next album, our final album, as well as playing a handful of shows.

I’m not sure exactly how many shows we are going to play and if any of them will be outside of CT, but we will be delivering to you one last recording to enjoy and remember us by as we all move on to the next chapter of our lives.
