Flipper cancels entire tour, Krist Novoselic leaves the band
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SEP. 17, 2009
It is with regret that Flipper must announce that we will be postponing our upcoming tour, scheduled to kick off on Nov. 8th. Bass player Krist Novoselic has decided that he will be unable to tour with the band.
Responsibilities at home will prevent him from being able to take the time necessary to get out on the road to promote our upcoming releases.
It is unfortunate, but Flipper will be finding a new bass player. We have enjoyed our time with Krist and have a new album of songs to show for it, and we¹ve done some great shows together.
We are very proud and excited to announce that Flipper will begin releasing it¹s back catalog later this year, beginning with 4 classic¹s. Generic Flipper, Gone Fishin¹, Public Flipper Limited, and Sex Bomb Baby.
We will follow these with more back catalog releases and a new album, as yet untitled, which was recorded by Jack Endino and includes Novoselic on bass.
We are looking forward to releasing all these great albums on CD, Vinyl, and Digitally, beginning later this year in US, Canada, Japan, and Australia. We will follow with releasing in UK, Europe, and other territories in the world as soon as we secure appropriate label partners.
Stay tuned for more info coming very soon.
