Crocodiles Mum on Tour Cancellation

Citing family emergency, string of fall dates is
cancelled but with an eye towards rescheduling.


By Blurt Staff


Late yesterday BLURT faves
the Crocodiles, whose recent album Sleep
is a clear contender for year-end Top Ten status, circulated a
message via their publicist that read thusly:


“Due to a serious family
emergency Crocodiles have had to cancel the remaining dates of their U.S. tour. The
band would like to apologize for any inconvenience and they look forward to
rescheduling these dates. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.”


The canceled dates for the
Crocs/Dum Dum Girls tour are listed below. (The band was supposed to play Hoboken tonight.) As of yet there has been no
elaboration on the exact nature of the emergency, so plan on speculation to
start running rampant throughout the blog-o-verse.


Meanwhile, if you’re not
up to speed on the band itself, you can go here to read our interview with the
band’s Charles Rowell, and then go here to read our review of the album. As we
put it so nimbly, Sleep Forever is equal parts fuzzed-out glam
slam, Krautrock boogie and latterday disco-punk… this astonishing record serves
up pop’s head on a platter and makes for one bloody good buffet.”
