Rocket From The Crypt reunite for European tour

The punk band joke about Dave Grohl producing their comeback album

Rocket From The Crypt have announced plans to reunite for a short European tour.

The punk band took to their website to share the news, revealing five club shows set for this April.

They will start the short tour in Berlin, Germany on April 2 at Festaal, going on to play Klubi in Tampere, Finland (April 3), La Trabendo in Paris, France (April 4), L’Usine on Lake Geneva, Switzerland (April 5) and Razzmatazz in Barcelona, Spain (April 6).

The group – who disbanded in 2005 after a hometown Halloween show in San Diego, California – have stated that there ‘maybe’ other shows, writing: “We will see how it goes.”

They added that they are not playing the ‘Indio’ festival, meaning Coachella in California, which earlier today announced its line-up for this April.

In a tongue-in-cheek Q&A session on their website, in response to the question: “Are there plans for a new RFTC record?” they answer “Yes, Dave Grohl from Nirvana is producing.”

Rocket From The Crypt reunited briefly in 2011 to perform on children’s TV show Yo Gabba Gabba.

The band released seven albums, the first being 1991’s ‘Paint as a Fragrance’ and the last, ‘Live From Camp X-Ray’, in 2002.
