Bad Astronaut playing shows without Derrick Plourde, announce vinyl release

bad-astronaut1Joey Cape announced that his Lagwagon side project Bad Astronaut will be doing very select shows in Southern California starting in July. Joey had previously stated that the band would never play without Derrick Plourde who passed away in 2005. Here’s his explanation for why they’re playing now:

“I have said for years I did not want to do a Bad Astronaut tour without Derrick Plourde, our late drummer. Well, we are touring in July and our decision to do it acoustic means that statement holds true. Anyway, I will announce the dates soon. I can tell you so far there are just a few and they are all in Southern California. We are also planning to begin releasing all of our records on Vinyl. They will be released by Vinyl Collective beginning with “Acrophobe” in July to coincide with our tour.” – Joey Cape

Bad Astronaut released their last album Twelve Small Steps, One Giant Disappointment on Fat Wreck Chords in 2006.
