The Muffs

'90s-era rockers The Muffs recently announced that their first album since 2004, Whoop Dee Doo, would be out on July 29 via trusty garage rock label Burger (and Cherry Red), and they've just released a second single from it. Like its predecessor, "Up and Down Around," "Weird Boy Next Door" has them sounding like no time's passed since their prime era. And if you were wondering if Kim Shattuck still has her scream, this new one proves it. Check it out below.

The band have also added a few Northeast dates to their tour schedule, including a NYC show happening on October 10 at The Bell House, as well as CT and NJ dates. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale now.

Speaking of Burger, the label's Caravan of All Stars tour was recently announced.

All Muffs dates are listed, with the new song stream, below...

Kim is better off without those douchebag Pixies. Sounds nice... classic Muffs.

wasn't this bitch kicked out of the pixies for trying to hog the spotlight, crowd surfing, etc.?

pixies don't need theatrics and crowd-friendly behaviour.

Well then apparently the Pixies are artists who don't know how to have a good time.
Something tells me she stage-dove, etc. because she was getting into the music and was having fun. I don't see how you could begrudge someone that. If it pissed off Old Man Black, that's pretty dumb.

Plus, haven't the Pixies been talking about their "brand" these days anyway? About doing well for the Pixies "brand." Those ARTISTS don't give a fuck about art right now and are just money-grabbing as far as I can tell.

OK, sorry for the Pixies rant. I live in New Haven, so it's cool the Muffs are coming.

Frank Black had the Pixies band manager let her know she was out of the band. They didn't like that she stage dove d into the audience during one of their shows. DAINTY BOYS. I mean I love me some Pixies songs, but the story of her short time with the band is laughable. Better off with the the Muffs to be sure.
