On The Road Again
It gives me the greatest possible pleasure to announce a truckload of new tour dates. After 15 months off the road, it’s time to gas up that tour bus and load up that gear and take this Rock and Roll out among the people again.
We’ve all had our vaccinations. I’m begging all of you (that haven’t already) to please get those shots and let’s do this right. It’s easy and effective and the way forward towards getting our lives back. We want our friends out there to be safe and healthy and also don’t want some widespread breakout to derail all of this again.
DBT is turning 25 next month. We’ll be getting together in July to blow out the cobwebs as well as do a little recording of some new songs before heading out to play for you. I have a feeling these will be some of the greatest DBT shows we’ve ever played and I hope to see all of you out there as soon as possible.
It’s Fucking Great to be Alive!!!
