The original Meat Puppets roster — songwriter/frontman Curt Kirkwood, his bassist brother Cris, and drummer Derrick Bostrom — reunited back in 2017 when they were inducted into the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame. That performance rekindled the magic that brought them together in the first place, and the one-off show soon became a full-blown reunion. Back together for the first time in 23 years, the Puppets now have a new album, Dusty Notes, coming March 8th.

The band previously revealed lead single “Warranty”, and today they’ve unwrapped another track, “Nine Pins”. With a playful organ notes (courtesy of keyboardist Ron Stabinsky) and country guitar licks, the track is a surprisingly jaunty track that could be coming right out of Bakersfield. Take a listen below

In addition to the new song, Meat Puppets have announced a run of US spring tour dates. The 14-date trek marks the original lineup’s first tour together in over two decades. Neil Hamburger, All Souls, Sumo Princess, and Stephen Maglio will provide support on select dates.
