Dada are going to Dizz Knee Land. Well, not really. They are going on tour, however.
The band will return to the road for an intimate winter tour kicking off on January 23 at the Key Club in Los Angeles. Singer-guitarist Michael Gurley, singer-bassist Joie Calio and drummer Phil Leavitt are celebrating the 20th anniversary of dada's groundbreaking I.R.S. Records debut Puzzle, which propelled the Los Angeles trio to prominence thanks to artful rockers including "Dizz Knee Land," "Dim," "Surround" and "Dorina."
Throughout the 35-date tour dada will feature tracks from Puzzle as well as material from across their notable discography that the band has rarely or never played live. In addition to showcasing a range of gems from their extensive catalogue the band will feature several new songs during the marathon-length performances.
"This tour is about celebrating longevity. We have a ton of material and a ton of material we've never played live," said Leavitt.
"The best way for me to crank it up – to let my hair hang down and really rock – is with dada. It's still the best band I've ever been in and I'm really looking forward to taking it to the people again," added Gurley.
