I’m Surprised AARP Isn’t Sponsoring The KISS/MOTLEY CRUE 2012 Tour.

The Kiss and Mötley Crüe Tour! Tell your parents their favorite music from their past is coming back for one more trip through memory lane. Oh I can see it now, a sea of face painted dweebs and fat groupies from 1987 who put on 200 extra pounds yet still dress like they are 21 and 120 lbs. Yikes. Not only is this terrifying in imagination, I’m sure the reality of the situation won’t be much better. Oh and my guess is that the ticket prices will be ungodly, like 80 bucks for GA and probably 40 for those nosebleed seats. Enjoy this event! It may not be as bad as I imagine but….I don’t want to take that chance.

Tour dates after the jump.

For All You Hungry European Grinders Over There: FUCK THE FACTS Will Be Touring There Real Soon Like. Also Nominated For Canadian Award!

So apparently the band that likes to shred your face off and feed it to the local folk are going to tour in Europe! A complete listing of dates is available below.  Guitarist Topon Dos commented on the upcoming run:

 “It’s been a couple of years since we’ve last been to Europe, so we’re excited not only to finally get back over there, but to also have the opportunity to play some countries like Finland and Hungary for the first time. We’ve been ripping through a bunch of songs from our new album “Die Miserable” recently, so you can expect to hear a lot of newer tunes. See you soon!”

Also, the band has been nominated for Canada’s prestigious 2012 Juno awards in the Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year category and Sirius XM’s Indies Metal Artist/Group of the Year category.  More info on the Juno awards is available here while voting for the Sirius XM awards can be accessed here. So be sure to go and vote for FUCK THE FACTS and help them win! Unless of course you like some other Canadian band more, then vote for them I guess. It’s your choice! In case you haven’t heard of the new album, be sure to check out their bandcamp page because the new album “Die Miserable” is streaming in full.
