Pennywise, Pepper to co-headline spring Jagermeister Tour
The trek, which features two annual installments, including a fall version, gets underway April 13 in Seattle, and will hit nightclubs and small theaters in 25 cities across the country through late May. Dates for the outing are shown below.
Pennywise worked with producer Cameron Webb (Social Distortion, Motorhead) on "Reason to Believe," its ninth studio album and the follow-up to 2005's "The Fuse."
The album, which surfaced last March, is "a combination of what our fans expect from us with a few curveballs thrown in here and there," said lead singer Jim Lindberg in a statement. "We have to be happy with what we're doing before anyone else, so it will all be about trying to challenge ourselves."
Pepper continues to support its fifth studio album, "Pink Crustaceans and Good Vibrations," which was released on its own Law Records imprint last July. The set was produced by The Butthole Surfers' Paul Leary, who also helped produce the group's previous effort, 2006's "No Shame." Songs from the set are streaming at the trio's MySpace page.
