We’re gonna gender bend on this one and combine an informative post with a video post. We’ve got some big, brown news from the Ween camp:
Yes, the new Ween album has a name, “La Cucaracha”. The album kicks ass, I’m not really sure what else to say about it other than I really can’t wait for it’s release. There’s not a wasted minute of music on there. We wrote and recorded a ton of material before we whittled it down to it’s present state. We recorded the album to two inch 24 track tape and it sounds amazing. As always, it was produced and mixed by Andrew Weiss. It’s due to be released in late September and we have already booked our American tour, which runs from mid-October until X-mas break. It will be our first full scale tour since “Quebec” was released. We will be playing pretty much every major city in the U.S. I’m not so sure yet about Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan but it looks like we’ll get there next year. I really, I mean really can’t wait for you guys to hear it. I think you’re gonna be floored.
In honor of this news, here’s the Ocean Man with Springsteen-esque intro from the band’s one-off performance at the School of Rock Festival in Asbury Park:
