Meat Puppets Announce US Co-Headlining Tour with Mudhoney + Limited Edition Vinyl


Meat Puppets Meat Puppets’ original lineup, Curt and Cris Kirkwood and drummer Derrick Bostrom, will be joining Mudhoney this spring for a co-headlining US tour in support of their latest album, Dusty Notes (Megaforce). In 2019, Mudhoney released the album, Morning in America. Dates are below, with more on the way. Tickets are on sale now.

The Puppets’ story begins with three kids, enamored of music and immersed in the psychedelic drug culture of Arizona in the ’70s, who find their way to punk rock and painstakingly become one of the most important bands of the American underground. “We began to make such a hellacious racket that we knew we were on to something,” says Derrick Bostrom, who rejoined the band in 2018.

“The band has been a really, really deep font of creativity,” Derrick said. “Love it or hate it, hit or miss, Curt is just prodigious. They are still living the rock lifestyle; they’re not doing it by half measures. They stayed on the road. These guys are uncompromising. I consider the Meat Puppets to be a national treasure.”

The Puppets have released two editions of limited vinyl: Meat Puppets II on blue and black swirl (100 pieces), and Dusty Notes on translucent “Coke bottle” color.

“…high-desert psychedelia and gentle harmonies familiar to fans of early albums II
and Up on the Sun.” – Rolling Stone

“[Dusty Notes] mirrors the Kirkwood brothers’ ethos: earthy and out of time, casual and familiar, and wholly at ease with itself.” – Pitchfork

“…country-turned-psychedelic gonzo trip signature sound.” – NPR Music / World Café

“This album sounds like a warm, stoned Sunday morning and it should instantly remind longtime fans of the band’s glory days.” – Brooklyn Vegan
