XBXRX Announce Tour and Release New Album? Slam Your Body Down and Wind It All Around! Slam Your Body Down and Zig-A-Zig Ahhhh!

Depending on who you ask, those from Connecticut are called Connecticuters or Nutmeggers, Michigan residents refer to themselves as either Michiganders or Michiganites, and Hawaiians are often divided into the kamaaina (native-born non-ethnic Hawaiians) and malihini (newcomers). But what the hell do you call inhabitants of the crazy state of XBXRX? Anyone who has seen the band live knows the most appropriate answer is "fucked up." Not since Sharon Stone spread her legs in Basic Instinct has an act been so open to filthy displays of vulgarity and violence as the California-cum-Alabama (ahh... that explains a bit of it) shit disturbers. It goes without saying that they hold a revered place in our dark 'n' dirty hearts.

Loathed (or feared) by as many as they are loved, XBXRX will head out on tour later this week on a self-destructive trek that will include a lot of shows in the U.S. and a few dates in Canada, where they were once allegedly barred from playing for a whole year. The tour takes in the eastern part of North America, then, surprisingly enough, the western part. There is a break between tour legs because the band either wants a bit of time off from their punishing live regimen or are planning on traveling out west on pummel horses mounted on wind-powered dune buggies
