For a little over 40 years, Skinny Puppy has cemented themselves as one of the most iconic acts in industrial music. Having formed in 1982, the band would release their studio album debut in 1984; as time would go on, the band only became bigger, going on to play all around the world and releasing a total of 12 studio albums.
To celebrate their 40-year-long career, the band has announced some exciting, yet melancholic news.
Skinny Puppy will be hitting the road come this April for a new tour, but it will also be their final tour.
Per a post the band shared on their Instagram, they provide the following statement:
“Withered bE this rope that smothers any hope and banG .. it’s been 40 Years .. ! .. all doGeared by memories formed through memory folds …these fevered dreams so far been told. When nothing is true?
“So here’s to our best shows still yet ahead! Join us!! We are hitting the road with good friends and very special guest Lead Into Gold to celebrate our time together and complete our FINAL TOUR on this, our 40th anniversary.
“We’re excited to share this last ‘fever dream’ with yoU all. To our west coast fans, don’t worry! We’ll see you soon! What a ride …… what a triP”
It is a shame to hear that this will be Skinny Puppy’s last tour, but in a way, that news also makes this run all the more exciting.
