As you may have heard, '90s alt-rockers Veruca Salt are back and will release their first new music in years as a Record Store Day 7". Says the band:

On April 19, Record Store Day, we're releasing a limited-edition ten-inch. On one side are two brand-new VS songs; on the other side is "Seether," (a) because this is the 20th anniversary of its original release, and (b) because come on. We recorded the new songs with Brad Wood, and Minty Fresh is putting the record out, just like the first time around. So much more to tell, but we're too busy relearning all our old songs and recording new ones.

The "relearning" part is because Veruca Salt are gearing up for live shows. While there hasn't been an official announcement, tour dates have emerged, including two in NYC: Bowery Ballroom on July 24 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 25. Tickets for the NYC shows go on sale Friday (4/18) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (4/16) at noon.

UPDATE: Full tour announced. All dates, plus the cover art for their RSD14 7", below...
