Cake, of late-'90s radio hit fame, is playing a show at NYC's Terminal 5 on Friday, May 29, as part of a short (but maybe not fully announced) spring tour. Tickets appear to be on sale now, despite the promoter's claim that they go on sale Friday (3/6) at noon. Cake played two dates at the same venue in 2007.

Cake has announced a new studio album for the summer 2009, to be released by Upbeat Records. The band will also "present an expanded and remastered reissue of Motorcade of Generosity, available in early 2009 via Upbeat." From the band's Myspace: "As-yet-untitled, CAKE's new studio album will be the first project they have undertaken since they overhauled their studio to run entirely on solar power." The band's most recent studio album was its fifth full-length, Pressure Chief, which featured single "No Phone" (video below).

Cake's interest in solar power is just one of the environmental and civic concerns documented on the band's website, which posts wisdom like "A dash of salt in coffee that has cooked or stood too long will remove the bitter taste" and instructions on how to grow watercress from urine.

All tour dates below...

I have been waiting for a remastered Motorcade of Generosity for SO LONG. That album is one of the best of the early 90's and features some of the greatest and grittiest guitar licks i've ever heard...this was back before Cake fully embraced the slick sound they currently employ. Can't wait to hear Mr. Mastadon Farm on an equal volume as the rest of my music collection.

I saw them a few years back. They led the crowd in an extended sing along of one of their songs. I turned a friend of mine and asked him if he realized he was repeatedly chanting "Satan is my motor" with 1,500 other people. He stopped...

pressure chief is indeed not very good, but, as 11:15 stated, it IS cake, "bro".

Ms. Maxine, I had that same idea! I'm so excited...and holding my ticket right now.

Cake is an amazing live band. I saw them at a relatively small show up in Alaska a couple summers ago, and I've rarely seen such a happy audience.

But this song sucks.

Cake's great, but they need to stop it with all this dumbass environmental shit. Just make your music and shut up.

I would like to propose not to hold back until you earn enough money to buy all you need! You can just take the credit loans or just secured loan and feel yourself fine
