The Dead Milkmen Announce West Coast Tour
Hard to believe, but it's been 30 years since the Dead Milkmen issued their debut album, 'Big Lizard in My Backyard.' Their satirical and often juvenile brand of punk inspired rock garnered a large and loyal fan base over the years.
"The Dead Milkmen are still crafting irreverent music that’s as relevant as ever," a recent press release for the band states. Since reforming in 2008, the Milkmen have kept themselves busy, and now the Philadelphia-based band is about to set off on a tour of America's West Coast.
“We’re very excited about playing out west for our fans -- both old and new -- and being able to play some of the new album tracks along with the old favorites,” says drummer Dean Clean. “Although the trouble is, I bet the minute we get back to Philly we’ll hear from someone in Seattle or L.A. saying, ‘Hey guys! How come you never play out here?!’ It never fails!”
Last year, they released 'Pretty Music for Pretty People,' their 10th album overall, and second since reforming.
