Happy 20th, Toadies!

Raise a glass to the Toadies as the band marks the 20th anniversary of its debut album, “Rubberneck.” And make sure it’s a glass of Rubberneck Red – the group’s very own beer. Along with the beer, the group is celebrating with a reissue of the LP and a U.S. headline tour.

Including five previously unreleased bonus tracks, the remastered Rubberneck is due out on CD and vinyl April 1. The extra tunes feature cuts from the original recording sessions and exclusive live material. The reissue will be the first time the album will be available on 180 gram vinyl.    

Toadies’ beer will also be released in April from Martin House Brewing Company.

As for the tour, the band is bringing along its close friends Supersuckers and BattleMe as special guests.

“I’m really excited to take the Supersuckers and Battleme on the road with us,” Clark Vogeler said. “I figure we have all rock bases covered. Each band brings something different to the table, but they all fit on the bill perfectly. If you come to one of these shows, you will be rocked!”

Vaden Todd Lewis adds, “20 years ago I would have never imagined that the album would have not only caught on, but held on for so long. The fans that album brought us have stayed with us over the years and continue to spread the word. I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces.”
