The three dates will feature original members Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, and Trey Spruance, in addition to Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, Suicidal Tendencies, ex-Slayer) and will find the ensemble performing their 1986 demo release, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny. Here are the dates: 2/7 Los Angeles, CA @ Fonda Theatre 2/8 San Francisco, CA @ Warfield Theatre 2/10 New York, NY @ Brooklyn Steel Vocalist Mike Patton comments: "I remember writing riffs for this cassette in my parent's garage, with no heat, so I recorded in a sleeping bag for analog warmth, playing a one-stringed acoustic guitar that was piped into a ghetto blaster. Thank god I had Trevor and Trey to help decipher my rotten riffs into something intelligible! To have Scott and Dave with us on this suicide mission is more than an honor. They are a big part of the reason we wrote this stuff in the first place, and to realize it 30+ years later with these maestros is an absolute miracle… we can finally play this teenage nonsense correctly! A total catharsis for us."
