Mr. Bungle Announces Reunion Tour
Mr. Bungle is reuniting to play live shows for the first time in nearly 20 years. The tour will include the band playing their 1986 demo tape The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny in full in three cities over 7 nights.
Fronted by vocalist Mike Patton, the band will include Trey Spruance and bassist Trevor Dunn. As if that’s not enough, they’ll be joined by Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and Slayer/Suicidal Tendencies drummer Dave Lombardo.
“When we recorded [The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny], we were 16 and 17 years old and we were absolutely serious about the music,” Dunn stated. “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.”
The band will perform in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco in just over a week in February. Tickets are on sale now.
