King Khan & BBQ Show are back with their first album in five years, Bad News Boys, which will be out via In the Red on February 17. You can get a nibble via "Illuminations," a pretty killer slab of '60s-ish garage pop. Stream that below.
Having toured with Black Lips last year, King Khan & BBQ Show will be out on the road in March. No NYC date yet, so stay tuned. All dates are listed below...
Man, Burger Records is really feeling the Angus Soundtrack '90s kids lately. First they signed The Muffs and now they've booked Weezer for their fourth Burgerama festival happening March 28-29 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA. And that's not their only kinda-crazy booking this year. They've also got Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, the current version of Gang of Four, and of course plenty of awesome more expected names like Ty Segall, Black Lips, J Mascis, Ariel Pink, Roky Erickson, King Khan & BBQ Show, FIDLAR, White Fence, together PANGEA, The Queers, The Coathangers, Shannon and the Clams, JEFF the Brotherhood, La Luz, Girl Band and still plenty more as you can see in the full lineup below. Tickets go on sale at 10 AM PST on Friday (12/12).

Goat / Deap Vally / Moving Sidewalks at Austin Psych Fest Day 3 - 4/28/13
Sunday was also about giving credence to the forbears of pysch-rock. Roky Erikson put on an energetic show to a loving and enthusiastic audience. The main attraction, and headliners for the fest, were the Moving Sidewalks featuring Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. Any time one can catch Gibbons, it's worth paying attention, but unfortunately it seemed like some members of his old band hadn't played since the 1960s. Gibbons's familiar growl and deft guitar work did make up for most of it.Austin Psych Fest wrapped up its 2013 festival at its new home of Carson Creek Ranch last Sunday (4/28). The third, and final, day of the fest included sets by Billy Gibbons' pre-ZZ Top band Moving Sidewalks, Swedish psych freakout group Goat, former 13th Floor Elevators frontman Roky Erickson, The Black Angels, Black Angels collaborator/tourmate Rishi Dhir's project Elephant Stone, Clinic, King Khan & BBQ, White Fence, Deap Vally and more.
Sweden's Goat had the unfortunate slot coinciding with the second half of the Black Angels, but neither the crowd or the band seemed to notice. Dressed as gypsy druids, the band played a sort of jam-pysch rock with insane energy. The band wore masks, but the two female leads stole the show, euphorically jumping and singing throughout each song. [Austinist]

"At Glasslands watching my bros King Khan and BBQ enter the wormhole of love"
- Sean Ono Lennon
King Khan @ Glasslands
The King Khan & BBQ Show brought their tour with Bloodshot Bill through NYC last week for shows at Santos Party House (4/11) and Glasslands (4/13). We caught the Glasslands show, which was sold out, and like he's done before, Bloodshot Bill joined King Khan on stage at the show. Were you there? Sean Ono Lennon was (as you can see above). If you were, what did you think?
More pictures from that show below...
They said it could never be done. They said the hate was just too severe, the wounds too sebaceous. They said Mark Sultan was working as a spy at Sunmaid Raisins and that King Khan was crossing the world taped to three swans.King Khan & After teasing the coasts with select Midwest dates, BBQ Show will be ripping up either side of North America in April, including two stops in NYC: Santos Party House on 4/11 and Glasslands on 4/13. Tickets to both Santos and Glassland are on sale now.

One-man-band extraordinaire, Mark Sultan, just played the John McCauley and Friends show at Zankel Hall in NYC (his Rocks Off boat show later that night got canceled) and will be on tour for most of the fall, some of which will be as part of King Khan & BBQ Show and you can watch a video preview they made just for their dates, which don't include NYC unfortunately.
