King Khan and the Shrines Blitz North America

King Khan and the Shrines Blitz North America
Once again, the wild and crazy guys and gals of King Khan and the Shrines are set to bring the rock to the masses. Starting this March, the band have announced they will embark on quite the extensive North American tour, hitting up a number of cities both north and south of the border, bringing with them more than their share of rock theatrics.

And while the costumed denizens of King Khan and the Shrines won't have a new studio album up for grabs at the merch table, they will have a new reissue. As previously reported, the group's 2007 souled-out smash What Is?! will finally be treated to a North American release on April 21 courtesy of Vice Records. Other than that, there appears to be no new King Khan releases lined up for the near future.
