Mr. Bungle is back is business.
The group, one of many bands to feature the ever-prolific Faith No More frontman Mike Patton, will reunite in 2020 to play their first shows in nearly 20 years. The dates include stops in Los Angeles on February 7, San Francisco February 8, and New York City February 10.
During the shows, Mr. Bungle will be playing their 1986 debut demo The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny in full. The band’s lineup will include original members Patton, guitarist Trey Spruance, and bassist Trevor Dunn, along with Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo.
“To have Scott and Dave with us on this suicide mission is more than an honor,” says Patton. “THEY are a big part of the reason we wrote this stuff in the first place, and to realize it 30-plus years later with these maestros is an absolute miracle…we can finally play this teenage nonsense correctly! A total catharsis for us.”
A press release notes that, “there will be no additional cities added to this itinerary.” Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 16 at 10 a.m. local time. Visit MrBungle.com for more info.
