The night before Valentine’s Day 2014 brought ’90s alternative rockers Failure back to the stage for the first time in 16 years. The whirlwind of a reunion has continued as the trio joined Tool on tour last month, and the momentum has prompted Failure to hit the road on their own, beginning in May.
The group’s reunion began to shape up in the news last fall as Record Store Day’s Back To Black Friday, held November 29th, included the re-release of their 1994 album Magnified. Frontman Ken Andrews spoke to SPIN earlier that month about the group banding back together.
Now that they’ve spent a good month of touring with Tool, Failure will get their own tour started by joining Puscifer and A Perfect Circle at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, for Maynard James Keenan’s 50th birthday celebration.
Failure will then be appearing throughout the U.S. and Canada, and tTckets for all dates, excluding Cinquanta (sold out), are on sale April 11th* and 12th**.
UPDATE 4/16: Great news for Failure fans, as the band has just added a handful of dates to their upcoming reunion tour. It now extends their shows into June, with stops in Atlanta, Nashville and extra California dates, so stay tuned for any additions they might announce in the near future. ‘Til then, take a look below at all the gigs they’ve got planned for the next couple months.
