Well how about that - it looks as though legendary experimental rockers Mr. Bungle will be reuniting to play three shows for the first time in 20 years! Not only that, but they will be performing their 1986 demo The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny in full, because of course they are.
Not only THAT, but Mike Patton (yep, that Mike Patton), Trevor Dunn and Trey Spruance will be joined by none other than Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, Dead Cross) to round out the lineup!
Sadly, all three shows will be in the US, but you have plenty of time to organise some flights over before they take place in February next year.
Bassist Trevor Dunn had this to say on the special shows:
“When we recorded that demo, we were 16 and 17 years old and we were absolutely serious about the music. At the time, we were living the deluge of '80s metal and absorbing every riff and every drum fill from every known band from Denmark to San Francisco. The recording and playing were amateurish (save for Trey's video-game-solos) but the schooled composition and spirit were solid. I always felt like this music held its own and deserved to be presented in a clearer and more defined package even if it meant being 33 years later.”
We cannot wait to see footage of this one.
