Platinum-Selling Jazz Rockers Squirrel Nut Zippers To Join The Band X On Tour

Tour Begins June 23 with Squirrel Nut Zippers for Seven Shows

On the heels of their just completed spring tour of the west coast, the iconic punk rock band, X, announce new plans for a summer tour where they will continue to debut new music they’ve been working on for a future Fat Possum album release, along with your X favorites, of course. Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, and DJ Bonebrake are hitting the road beginning June 23rd where they will be joined for seven dates by good friends, THE SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS (SNZ).  

SNZ, whose most recent studio album titled Beasts Of Burgundy debuted at #4 on the Billboard Jazz Albums Chart, have released eight studio records throughout their career including their pivotal album Hot (1996). Lauded for taking their signature style of anti-establishment music to commercial radio, Hot was the band’s sophomore album and was certified Platinum in 1997. The band has been performing non-stop since reactivating in mid-2016, bringing their musical gumbo sound, infused with jazz chords, folk, and punk rock, to packed houses across the country and around the world. 

Later in July, X will be joined by THE ENGLISH BEAT and SAVE FERRIS for a show in Redmond, WA and at the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, CA on July 30th. More summer dates for X will be announced shortly. Tickets for the current June/July run will be on sale Friday, April 21 with a pre-sale beginning Wednesday at 10am PT (use code: X2023).

Last year, X wrapped a hugely successful Summer tour with the Psychedelic Furs in addition to their annual December X-Mas west coast run where they performed the songs from their 2020 critically acclaimed release, Alphabetland, in addition to the iconic X hits fans know and love from the bands 45-year career.
