Ween is gone for good, and with a posting today on bandcamp, now so is "Gene Ween". The blurb on bandcamp reads:
After 20+ years of near-fatal drug & alcohol abuse (thankfully culminating with intensive but successful rehab), AARON FREEMAN (aka Gene Ween) was left in a dire financial situation. All proceeds will go directly to Aaron, as he continues down the path toward creative freedom and personal health.Head to Bandcamp to hear and buy the six songs, or stream it below..
These demos represent the final writings and music of Gene Ween, before he departed and the inner FREEMAN emerged. On that note, we have received a two word personal statement from Aaron: "stay tuned."
In related news, Dean Ween aka Mickey Melchiondo Jr. aka Mickey Moist is going on tour in December with his band Moistboyz. Kicking off in Ween's hometown of New Hope on 12/4, the boyz hit Stage 48 in NYC on 12/7 before continuing on their way. All Dean dates are listed under the Gene stream below...
