They haven’t done it in 15 years, but soon Redd Kross will be gracing the East Coast with all of their powerful pop rock presence. The band will also be stopping in such appropriate places as the Mojave Desert, as well as touring parts of Australia with Dinosaur Jr.
Reviews point to the release of 2012’s Researching The Blues as something indicative of early Redd Kross, but it’s been said it’s the least favorite of the band’s records. Founding bassist Steve McDonald cites it, however, as “the most singular artistic vision of any record we’ve done. It’s just 10 really fucking awesome songs that have the ability to move you in many different ways.”
For upcoming shows, of which the band will be working with Burger Records on, McDonald says label founder Lee Rickard will be driving the band around in the Burger Van, and will possibly guest DJ on a few of the tour nights.
Below is a rundown of the vigorous tour Redd Kross will soon be embarking on.
