King Khan/Shrines For Spring Tour


Deep fried ass shakin’ soul comin’ to yer
town to help you party down…


By Blurt Staff



With latest album
What Is?! finally getting a proper
domestic release (Vice, April 21st), King Khan and The Shrines are once again
set to shock and awe, bringing their frantic brand of psychedelic soul insanity
to the youth of America. The kicks off next week and will take them through the
heart of the south en route to shows in Austin SXSW, then after taking most of
April off the band will resume operations at the end of April for another
month-long track across North America, including a stop at the Sasquatch!
festival in the heart of Washington


As we are advised
by their label, “The band left many folks scratching their heads, picking their
jaws up off the floor, and tearing up dollar bills as a sign of unity after
their first tour of the US last year after mindblowers at the Pitchfork
festival and dates all across the country. Most didn’t even know what hit them.
King Khan and The Shrines are doing it all over again, and everyone will be
thankful they did.”
