NoMeansNo invade Europe for the eleventy billionth time.

NoMeansNo's first promo photo, circa 1982

NoMeansNo, who we used to call the “godfathers of Canadian punk”, but who are now so old we are calling them “the great-great-great-grandfathers of recorded music as we know it in modern society”, have been let out of the old punks home for yet another guerilla attack on unsuspecting music venues in Europe.  Unconfirmed sources report that the Canadian government is funding them as part of a deranged plan to overthrow all European governments prior to deploying a worldwide army of Mounties to enforce military rule.  Yeah, right.

We have obtained the following unconfirmed itinerary and feel it is our duty to warn the following venues and the citizens of these towns regarding a potential outburst of loud punk in their areas:

It will feature four tracks : “Faceless May”, “Old”, “Slave” and “Something Dark Against Something Light”.  Just 500 copies have been pressed up for the tour invasion.  After the tour the EP will  be available for digital download from Southern, Boomkat, iTunes, Amazon, eMusic and other fine online music stores.
