RTX Announce West Coast Tour, Split 7-Inch and Upcoming Album
Published Jul 27, 2011Jennifer Herrema has been on a hard rock journey for decades now, starting with noise auteurs Pussy Galore straight through to music history deconstructionists Royal Trux and onto the sleazy, hard-rockin' ensemble RTX. Three years after the "unapologetically balls-to-the-wall" JJ GOT Live RaTX, Herrema's current ensemble have announced a flurry of activity that includes tour dates and some new material.
First up is a short West Coast trip in September that will take RTX to two Canadian cities: Vancouver and Victoria. The outfit will be bringing along Nashville garage outfit Heavy Cream, which is fitting as both bands can promote their side of an upcoming split seven-inch. "Killer Weed"/"Deadbeat" will be issued sometime in September on Volcom, but the bands will have copies on tour.
While the thought of a new RTX song is tantalizing enough, a press release informs us that the band will also be premiering a whole host of new tunes that will be cropping up on their next album RAD TIMES IV. The set is due sometime early next year on Drag City.
