the flesh eaters

The reunited L.A. supergroup The Flesh Eaters — featuring John Doe & DJ Bonebrake of X, Dave Alvin & Bill Bateman of The Blasters, Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, and punk poet Chris D — are gearing up to release their first new album in 35 years. It’s titled I Used to Be Pretty and it’ll be out January 18 via Yep Roc. You can listen to the first single, which is a cover of The Sonics’ “Cinderella,” below.

The Flesh Eaters will be on tour starting just before the release of the album and they’ll be playing Midwest/East Coast dates in March, including NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on 3/17. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All tour dates are listed, along with album art and tracklist, below.
