After releasing a bunch of cryptic photos over the last few weeks, we now know the first confirmed Rocket From The Crypt reunion shows. They’ll take place in April in Europe and you can see the dates below along with some new FAQs from Speedo. These will be the first public RFTC performances since 2005, but earlier this year they played together for a Yo Gabba Gabba skit.

ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT (AGAIN) JC2000, Apollo 9, The Notorious ND, Dr. Chud, Atom, Petey X and Speedo. rock n roll is dead and reborn (again)
Q: Will there be other shows?
A: Maybe. We will see how it goes
Q: If I have a Rocket tattoo can I get in free?
A: Yes, but only those with the new “reborn again” logo. This new logo consists of a purple phallus relieving itself on 3 rolled tacos with guacamole.
Q: Can I shake Speedo’s hand?
A: Of course, but please bring hand sanitizer and have your camera focused and ready so that others can have an opportunity as well.
Q: I have a band that wants to play with you guys. Is this possible?
A: Possibly. If you have 2 Marshall JCM 800 half stacks, a decent bass amp and you don’t mind us making pee pee on your equipment and you playing for free yes, perhaps we can work something out.
Q: This isn’t really a question….but that sounds like a bad deal
A: You obviously do not know the value of exposure.
Q: My friend Chris doesn’t really like your band, but he is my ride. What should I do?
A: Fuck you, Chris
Q: I have final exams that week and I won’t be able to attend.
A: Good for you
Q: Why are you playing again? Are you broke or something?
A: I just want to make people happy, if only for an hour or two
Q: Are there plans for a new RFTC record?
A: Yes, Dave Grohl from Nirvana is producing.
Q: Any last words?
A: Rock N Roll will never die. It can only live. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all very soon
