So after about a month’s break, ICP will head back out on the road in early January for what promises to be an extensive North American outing.

So far all dates confirmed are in the eastern U.S., including stops in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. More dates are expected to be announced as the trek progresses.

The band is headlining a theatre tour with an in-your-face supporting cast of Nashville Pussy, Suicidal Tendencies, and Confrontation Camp.

ICP was on the road wreaking havoc during most of 2000 and staged its first fan convention – The Gathering of the Juggalos – in late July. The bad clowns are backing up their latest release, Bizzar Bizaar, which came out October 31.

Punk vets Suicidal Tendencies are also out in support of a new release, Free Your Soul And Save My Mind, the Venice, Calif., band’s 13th album.

Chuck D and his rap collective, Confrontation Camp, make an interesting contrast with the Juggalos, Faygo soda and Silly String of Insane Clown Posse’s shtick. But at least they don’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Corey Parks, who literally spat flames for the band, quit the group last spring and has been replaced by Tracy Almazon, formerly of the Wives and Helldorado.
