For the first time since 1997, Redd Kross will embark on

its first full-blast run of shows along the east coast and in the Great

Lakes area. The same is true for San Diego and the Mojave Desert! The

band will also join Dinosaur Jr. on several dates in Australia.

Redd Kross founding member and bassist Steve McDonald says of the

tour: “We’re very excited about this run as it will also be the first

chance we’ve had to spread the gospel of Researching the Blues on US soil beyond the west coast since its release back in August.”

ReddKrossMarch-April2013The band has always garnered raves for its electrifying live shows. Of a recent performance, the Los Angeles Times wrote:

“Redd Kross greeted 2013 with long hair flying and the kind of big,

distorted chords, singalong choruses and head-banging ditties that made

them one of Los Angeles’ greatest punk bands when they rose from

Hawthorne in 1980 alongside kindred spirits Black Flag and Circle


For these upcoming dates, Redd Kross will work with Burger Records (the label that put out Researching the Blues on

limited-edition cassette) to find “Burger-approved” local support in

each town. Steve tells us that Lee from Burger will also be driving the

guys around in the Burger Van, selling merch and maybe even guest DJing

on special nights. Also, longtime Redd Kross fans will be excited to

know that the band plans to dig deep into its 30-plus-year

career-spanning catalog, playing such underground rock classics as

“Annie’s Gone,” “Linda Blair,” and “Annette’s Got the Hits” in addition

to songs from the recent album.

Researching the Blues features 10 new songs clocking in at

just under 32 minutes. With songs written by co-founder Jeff McDonald

and produced and mixed by Steve, the album is by far the band’s favorite

record. Steve says, “It has the most singular artistic vision of any

record we’ve done. It’s just 10 really fucking awesome songs that have

the ability to move you in many different ways.”

NPR’s Stephen Thompson provided this glowing review of the record:

“Power-pop signposts abound throughout the album, from Cheap Trick to

Teenage Fanclub—the latter could’ve fit ‘Dracula’s Daughters’ onto Bandwagonesque and no one would have minded—but Researching the Blues never delves into nostalgia. Who has time, when you’re having this much fun blowing kids half your age out of the water?”
