Published Jul 27, 2009Legendary Oregon garage punk couple Fred and Toody Cole spent years putting out some seriously dirty garage jams with their old band, Dead Moon, but called it quits just a few years ago. However, lucky for us, they quickly returned as Pierced Arrows in 2007 and have been playing hard ever since.
Now, the trio (rounded out by drummer Kelly Halliburton) have announced a massive North American tour. Kicking off in Bellingham, WA on August 6, the tour will see the band hit up most of the West coast before heading east. Along the way, they'll perform Canadian dates at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret and Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern.
According to the band's website, Pierced Arrows are currently at work on their third long-player, tentatively called Descending Shadows. The group have also just released a limited-to-300 multimedia box that includes a single, a tour itinerary and a number of other goodies, all which were likely assembled in DIY fashion at the Cole household. You can learn more about the box here.
Oh, and just in case you're wondering, Pierced Arrows have been known to throw a couple of Dead Moon classics into their set, including the immortal "Dead Moon Night."
