The psychobilly act, which formed in Denmark back in 1989, start things off July 7 at Copy Congress in Tucson, Ariz., with dates booked through an Aug. 31 gig at El Corazon in Seattle.
Nekromantix will also be hitting up Warsaw in Houston (July 13) as well as The Social in Orlando, Fla. (July 21), Ottobar in Baltimore (July 25), First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia (July 28), Reggies Rock Club in Chicago (Aug. 7) and Slim’s in San Francisco (Aug. 27).
The Phoenix New Times promises that psychobilly fans are in for a real treat.
“The Reverend Horton Heat is the undisputed king of psychobilly, but you could make a helluva case for Nekromantix frontman Kim Nekroman as the genre's crown prince,” the Times says. “In many ways, Nekromantix epitomize the psychobilly look and sound even more than the good Reverend himself. With their gravity-defying pompadours and fixation on monsters and horror movies, Nekromantix owe as much to the Misfits as they do Carl Perkins.”
Nekromantix have released seven studio albums, including the band’s most recent release, 2007’s Life Is a Grave & I Dig It!
