The traveling circus launches December 2 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, and so far the group has lined up nine dates through the East and Midwest, running through December 17.

ICP was on the road wreaking havoc most of the first half of the year, and staged its first fan convention – The Gathering of the Juggalos – in late July. The bad clowns from the Dark Carnival are now backing up their sixth release, Bizzar, Bizaar, which came out October 31.

How the clowns, Juggalos, Faygo soda and Silly String of Insane Clown Posse’s shtick are going to mesh with Chuck D’s Confrontation Camp rap collective is anyone’s guess.

At least they won’t have to compete with the fire-breathing ex-bassist from Nashville Pussy. Corey Parks, who literally spat flames for the band, quit the group last spring and has been replaced by Tracy Almazon, formerly of the Wives and Helldorado.

Punk veterans Suicidal Tendencies round out the bill. The Venice, Calif.-based outfit is supporting its 13th album, Free Your Soul And Save My Mind.
