The Distillers Announce Reunion Tour Dates
Earlier this month, The Distillers teased a reunion with a short video posted to their official Twitter page. Now, the band have revealed a string of headlining tour dates set to take place this spring!
The SoCal punk rock outfit led by frontwoman Brody Dalle have been teasing shows for the past week on social media in a variety of interesting posts. El Paso, Tex. on April 29, for instance, was spelled out using hot sauce and Tex-Mex food. San Diego, Calif. on April 25 was written in sand. And Dallas, Texas was scrawled across a mirror in lipstick of which Dalle can be seen taking a photo.
The six - so far - headlining dates begin in San Diego, Calif. April 25 at The Casbah and conclude May 2 at The Curtain Club in Dallas. The Distillers will also be appearing at The Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, Ga. They join an already stacked bill which includes Jack White, Greta Van Fleet and Queens of the Stone Age, whose frontman Josh Homme is husband to Dalle. Tickets for the headline gigs go on sale tomorrow (Jan. 19) at 10am PT.
It's been a dozen years since The Distillers split, following an all too brief run which began in 1998. The band first found success in 2000 when they released their self-titled debut via Epitaph Records offshoot Hellcat Records. That was followed with Sing Sing Death House in 2002 and Coral Fang, the group's 2003 third LP, which featured their most well-known single, "Drain the Blood."
In the wake of The Distiller's breakup announcement in, Dalle teamed up with guitarist Tony Bevilacqua to form the alt-rock group Spinnerette. It remains unclear who will make up The Distillers lineup in the reunited iteration.
