The Black Dice are going on tour — yes, all of ‘em! Björn, Eric, Aaron, Justin, Sammy, Dale, Elron, Johnny “The Bass Player,” Skins, Sarah “Suntan,” Rudy, Joe, Herb, and Teddy. The 14-piece ensemble recently released their follow-up to a 1998 “strings tribute to OK Computer,” an album on Ribbon Music called Mr. Impossible (TMT Review). It was such “arousing success,” according to an ad snippet in the May issue of UK-based Kerrang!, that the small orchestra has decided to strip down to the essential three members and travel around Europe, massaging things inside rectangular boxes hooked up to amplifiers. As an avid supporter of Black Dice and a former resident of the greater EU, I, Tiny Mix Tapes, strongly suggest that you go see them. Back in the day, they used to perform all new material at their shows that would hint at the direction of their next record, so maybe you’ll get a nice big preview of the Mr. Impossible follow-up at face-deafening volumes.

All joking aside, if you live in one of these places and don’t go see them the night they play, I’m going to fuck you up. Hope you like broken bones and rectal examinations, jim, because that’ll just be the beginning. Don’t get caught on the wrong end of my stick, greg. You’ll go to that Black Dice show and you’ll get there on time. You’ll get right up to the front of the stage and if you forget to smile I’ll be right there behind you, smearing your face in the spilled beer on stage and deleting the contacts in your phone. Sorry, they’ll say, but you deserved every bit of that punishment.
