American rock band Airborne Toxic Event have announced a new North American tour that will coincide with the release of their upcoming album Hollywood Park (their first since 2015’s Dope Machine) and a book by the same name, penned by front man Mikel Jollet.
Formed in 2006, Airborne Toxic Event consists of former journalist Mike Jollet as lead vocalist and songwriter, Steven Chen on guitar and keyboards, Adrian Rodriguez on the electric bass and backup vocals, and Daren Taylor on drums.
The Hollywood Park memoir sees Jollett chronicle his extraordinary personal journey, from his early childhood in one of the most infamous cults of the ’70s, through a teenage life of poverty and emotional abuse, before finding his voice first as a critically acclaimed writer and then literally as singer and songwriter of The Airborne Toxic Event, according to their official website.
The new LP along with the accompanying book will both be released in May of 2020, with the tour to begin on May 27th. They kick off in Phoenix, AZ and tour throughout the West Coast, the Midwest, and the East Coast, before heading back west and closing out in San Francisco, CA.
