The Meat Puppets Have New Album & Tour Dates in the Works
The Meat Puppets Tour
Grunge-rock veterans The Meat Puppets have announced dates for a 2013 tour, as well as plans for a new album. The 33-year-old band will spend their spring hitting up the East Coast and South, kicking things off with a show in Shreveport, LA, at Voo Doo Lounge on March 28. You can also catch them in NYC for a two-night stint at Mercury Lounge beginning on April 3. The U.S. tour wraps up with a show on April 13 at Martin’s in Jackson, MS. You can also see the four-piece band overseas when they perform in Moscow on February 20, and in Barcelona for the Primavera Sound Festival on May 25.
The Meat Puppets are often credited with influencing bands like Soundgarden, Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana, and they’ve steadily been putting out albums since 1980. In regards to the new tunes, the album, titled Rat Farm, will be the band’s 14th. While there’s no solid release date yet, it’s expected to come out some time in the spring. For now, check out 2011’s Lollipop and listen to their song “Backwater” below.
