These shows will follow the upcoming release of Basses Loaded (June 3, Ipecac Recordings), which appropriately features not one, but six different bass players. The tour line up will feature Buzz, Dale and Steve McDonald and sees the trio kick off proceedings as the Saturday headliners of Temples Festival in Bristol (UK) then heading through Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and France before returning to the UK.
