Rocket from the Crypt

After teasing the reunion earlier this year, Rocket From The Crypt have announced a string of European dates but so far none in the US. The band has also taken time out to answer a few pertinent questions regarding the reunion. That FAQ list, the 2013 lineup, and more is below alongside a list of all dates.

---

ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT (AGAIN) JC2000, Apollo 9, The Notorious ND, Dr. Chud, Atom, Petey X and Speedo. rock n roll is dead and reborn (again)

Q: Will there be other shows?
A: Maybe. We will see how it goes
Q: If I have a Rocket tattoo can I get in free?
A: Yes, but only those with the new "reborn again" logo. This new logo consists of a purple phallus relieving itself on 3 rolled tacos with guacamole.
Q: Can I shake Speedo's hand?
A: Of course, but please bring hand sanitizer and have your camera focused and ready so that others can have an opportunity as well.
Q: I have a band that wants to play with you guys. Is this possible?
A: Possibly. If you have 2 Marshall JCM 800 half stacks, a decent bass amp and you don't mind us making pee pee on your equipment and you playing for free yes, perhaps we can work something out.
Q: This isn't really a question....but that sounds like a bad deal
A: You obviously do not know the value of exposure.
Q: My friend Chris doesn't really like your band, but he is my ride. What should I do?
A: Fuck you, Chris
Q: I have final exams that week and I won't be able to attend.
A: Good for you
Q: Why are you playing again? Are you broke or something?
A: I just want to make people happy, if only for an hour or two
Q: Are there plans for a new RFTC record?
A: Yes, Dave Grohl from Nirvana is producing.
Q: Any last words?
A: Rock N Roll will never die. It can only live. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all very soon

"3:29 Yeah, dickhead - I saw them last year, I want them to see them again.

So you are bragging that you have been into the Hot Snakes since 4 months ago?

Whaaaaaa ahhh ahhhhh DOWN WITH THE SICKNESS!

Also, if you were into the Hot Snakes when they first came out, you would most likely be in your late 20's/early 30's. That's a little to old to still be trying the "I was into them when you were still listening to...." routine.

NOBODY saw them last year, since last year was 2012. THIS is last year, it's 2013 now. They weren't even a band then. Thy formed in 2013. Now stop living.
