Dirtbombs News

  • The new record, We Have You Surrounded, is out next week. The tour kicks off tomorrow night in Detroit. The band will be making stops in Chicago and Iowa before going off to Australia for a spell. Following that, they return to North America for a major 50-city-plus tour, with Kelly Stoltz, Dan Sartain, and the Terrible Twos opening up along the way at various points. Locally, they will of course be playing Maxwell's, but this time they are also playing the Bowery Ballroom for the first time since July 2004, the very first time yours truly ever saw them play. Anticipate reviews of both those shows as well as the Philadelphia and Toronto gigs here on the blog.
  • Excellent article in the Detroit Metro Times on Mick's life & career, plus what the future holds.
  • Irish Indie label Infirmary Phonographic will be putting out a new single very soon; The single will have one original and a cover of a Suicide song.
  • As you may have noticed, the MySpace page run by yours truly has been ransacked, either by a hacker or MySpace itself. It's not looking good for a complete recovery but hopefully, even in its diminished form, it will remain the outlet for the band on that social network. Drag.
