Cherry Poppin' Daddies Announce Summer Us Tour Dates 2013

Cherry Poppin' Daddies are excited to announce summer tour dates in support of the Eugene, OR based band's forthcoming album White Teeth, Black Thoughts which The Onion AV Club says finds the band "singing about modern issues, but against a retro backdrop". Out July 16th on Space Age Bachelor Pad Records, the album marks CPD's first jazz and swing-powered outing in more than a decade. The dates will see them playing on the East and West Coast with gigs in cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, New York, Washington, Boston and many more. Upcoming tour dates below.

A revolutionary spirit has impelled Cherry Poppin' Daddies forward for nigh on two decades. After touring hard behind 2009's Skaboy JFK: The Skankin' Hits of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, the band - including founding members Dan Schmid (bass) and Dana Heitman (trumpet) as well as the full touring compliment - convened at Eugene's Gung Ho Studios and set to work. The always-prolific Perry had something big in mind, a double album of songs penned as the Great Recession wreaked havoc upon the heartland, held together by swing's timeless beat.

White Teeth, Black Thoughts dares to apply the form in an effort to scrutinize contemporary culture. Songs such as "Huffin' Muggles," an elegantly untamed tribute to Warholian transgression, adeptly carving out more detailed narratives and complex characterizations than usually found in popular music, let alone classic swing and jump blues. "The Babooch" - which bookends the two halves of White Teeth, Black Thoughts - is a Gatsby-esque tale of "the most American character, seduced by luxury but pricked by conscience."

A deluxe edition of White Teeth, Black Thoughts includes a bonus disk of material just as jubilant as the first, and features guest appearances from legendary musicians Buckwheat Zydeco and Zoot Horn Rollo (Captain Beefheart).
