Introducing Kesha And The Creepies

Kesha’s “deep eternal love of dirty rock ’n’ roll and country music” will be on display next month when she embarks on a brief tour with her new project she’s calling Kesha and the Creepies.

While her lawsuit against Dr. Luke is ongoing, including an appeal to break her contract, Kesha says she’ll be performing tunes fans have never heard her play before and she may never play again. She explains in a video posted online today, “It’s purely for the fucking love of rock ’n’ roll and my soul.”

The “F*ck the World Tour” launches Aug. 9 in Cleveland and runs through Aug. 23 in Louisville, Ky. Aside from the outing with the Creepies, Kesha has a handful of Mad Decent Party appearances lined up as well as sets at Atlanta’s Music Midtown and New York State Fair. Her next stop is Saturday’s gig at Las Vegas’ Intrigue Nightclub at The Wynn.

“The day has come that I, now, present to you, Kesha and The Creepies,” she writes. “This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music. I thrive from making and performing music, and much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don’t get to create and perform. So, for a short ride and in mostly small intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation. It’s been too long. Until I can release my own music I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols. I’ve hand picked songs from artists that have helped shape who I am and the music I make today. I have missed you, all of you, so if you would like to boogie, come join us. The time has come to get creepy.”
