Toadies revise old album for new release, plan tour

, Staff

Texas-based grunge rockers the Toadies will bring their new album, Feeler, to Boston with a Tuesday, September 14 show at the Paradise Rock Club. Tickets for the 18+ show are now on sale through Live Nation for $17. Psychedelic/southern rock band Gringo Star will open the show.

Feeler, the band’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to their 2008 reunion album No Deliverance, was released through Kirtland Records earlier this month. The band had originally planned to release the album in 1998 but their record label at the time, Interscope Records, rejected the album. Earlier this year, the Toadies decided to hit the studio and re-record several of the songs – along with some new material. Some of the reworked tracks on the brief nine-song, twenty-eight minute album include “City of Hate”, “Suck Magic”, and “Dead Boy”.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Todd Lewis commented on the band’s take on the album through a statement, saying, “Since there are unfinished versions floating around on the Internet, it is important to us that people hear it as we meant it to be”.
