FANTOMAS Add Second L.A. Warm-Up Show

FANTOMAS have added a second intimate warm-up concert at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on June 6. In addition to the previously announced 8:00 p.m. sold-out performance, there will be a new 10:30 p.m. show. The Troubadour gigs will be the group's first with legendary Terry Bozzio as their fill-in drummer (while Dave Lombardo is on the road with SLAYER).

FANTOMAS, whose lineup also features former FAITH NO MORE singer Mike Patton, MR. BUNGLE bassist Trevor Dunn, and MELVINS guitarist Buzz Osborne, are touring in support of their latest release, "Suspended Animation", available now on Ipecac Records.

"Suspended Animation" features 30 tracks, each titled after a different day in the month of April. The first manufacturing run of the set features a 30-page spiral-bound calendar to house the CD, with artwork by Japanese cartoonist Yoshimoto Mara. Sprinkled throughout the typically schizophrenic music are a bevy of cartoon samples, including Bugs Bunny's famous rhetorical question, "Well, what did you expect in an opera? A happy ending?," which ends the disc.
