Mr. Bungle Announce Their First East Coast U.S. Tour in 23 Years
Mr. Bungle, the prolific singer Mike Patton's experimental rock band that revived their early thrash metal persona with 2020's The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo, just announced their first U.S. tour of the Atlantic Seaboard since 2000.
Indeed, since the band, which currently includes Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and journeyman drummer Dave Lombardo, will already "venture out on their first post-pandemic tour dates this May as part of [Patton's] Ipecac Recordings' 'Geek Show'," a press release explains, Mr. Bungle have added an "eastern swing to their slate of 2023 outings" with more gigs in places such as New York, Boston and Toronto.
See the dates toward the bottom of this post.
Patton, also the singer of Faith No More and myriad other rock and metal projects, recently returned to the stage following a mental health hiatus. Onstage at Knotfest Chile with Mr. Bungle last year, he took a shot at a flying drone.
