Hey guys, remember last year when I wrote a fanboy post about Failure teasing out a reunion on Facebook? Well, it happened!
Ken Andrews (ON, Year of the Rabbit), Greg Edwards (Lusk, Autolux), Troy Van Leeuwen (A Perfect Circle, Queens of the Stone Age, Enemy), and Kellii Scott (Enemy, Veruca Salt) are together again sharing the stage. Failure have already played as opening act at several West Coast TOOL (who are teasing a new album later this year) shows, and are kicking of the Tree of Stars tour opening for A Perfect Circle and Puscifer at the Greek Theatre for Cinquanta: a 50th birthday party for Maynard James Keenan. From there, the tour becomes “An Evening with Failure”, meaning no opening act.
Instead of an opening act, the band will show a short film before launching into a set that they promise will span the breadth of their three full length albums, since fans haven’t been able to see them for so long.
Just when I thought things couldn’t get better after last week’s Game of Thrones (NO SPOILERS!)…
Today, Failure announced that the tour has been extended, which is why I’m just now writing about it. They have added dates for Atlanta (Saturday, June 7 at the Masquerade) and Nashville (Sunday, June 8 at the Exit/In). Tickets for these shows go on sale this Friday, April 18. So, set aside some tax money and get ready to space out! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to start listening to Fantastic Planet over and over until June. I suggest you do the same.
