RODDY BOTTUM's new band CRICKETS first show at NY Union Pool February 19th.
Roddy Bottum is keeping busy while Faith No More take an extended break. The new Imperial Teen album Now We Are Timeless is finished and it will come out on Merge Records July 12.
He is also in a new band called Crickets with DJ, producer and songwriter JD Samson (MEN, Le Tigre) and Michael O'Neill (MEN). The electro ensemble will play their first show on Tuesday February 19th at Union Pool in New York. It's a free show so get there early!
Michael O'neill posted on Instagram, "Ok I know what you guys are thinking - “Michael, chill with the bands already ..how many bands can u possibly be in??” .. I get it, I don’t know .. but when the stars align and you end up jamming and making music with one of your favorite collaborators JD Samson and favorite new friends Roddy Bottum u just kinda have to roll with it!!
