Skinny Puppy Returns
The first date on the books is June 11, when they’ll hit Portland, Ore.’s Roseland Theatre. They’re scheduled to traverse North America for just under a month before crossing the pond for a series of European dates. The current itinerary stretches through July 19, when they’ll play The Forum in London.
The band’s new album, The Greater Wrong Of The Right, is set for a May 25 release. Founding duo cEvin Key and Nivek Ogre enlisted a variety of impressive helping hands for the disc, including Danny Carey of Tool and Wayne Static of Static-X.
The album is the group’s first since Process, which was begun in 1993 but didn’t see release until 1996. During those three tumultuous years, the band changed producers several times, longtime member Dwayne Goettel died of a drug overdose, and Ogre departed for a new project.
In 2000, Ogre and Key reunited for a concert in Dresden, Germany, and began working on new Skinny Puppy material shortly thereafter.
