King Khan and The Shrines Tour the Warm States; Originally EU-Only Album Reissued by Vice Records

Finally! King Khan and the Shrines, the garage rock band everyone can agree on -- from your kid sister to that co-worker who you think might be cool, but can't really tell -- is getting the ol' reissue treatment for their (presumably) bitchin' 2007 album What Is?!. Originally released on the German label Hazlewood and previously unavailable in the United States, our friends at Vice have given the album a "do" and will be releasing the new domestic version April 21.

But that's not all! King Khan and the Shrines will also be the honorary guest judges at Pollywog, Alabama's annual All-You-Can-Eat pie contest! Winners get their names inscribed on the town's bronze tadpole statue and get a $500 gift certificate to Baker's Square, where legions of old ladies drinking coffee after church will idolize them and pinch their cheeks. DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT AT ALL TRUE I MADE IT UP TO ADD MORE CONTENT TO THIS STORY. What is true is that King Khan and his crew of merry garage rockers will be touring throughout the southern states, with a final stop at the Vice Records SXSW showcase.
