In spring of 2017, the band had a successful tour of the central and eastern United States supporting the limited reissues of Teen Babes from Monsanto and the rarities collection Hot Issue on Redd Kross Fashion, their own boutique label. The demand for those reissues exceeded the quantities that were made, so Merge Records is making both albums more widely available (and pressing them on different colored vinyl!). The reissues are due out December 7, and you can reserve your copies today in the Merge store.

Later in 2017, Redd Kross embarked on a world tour supporting the Melvins (bassist Steven McDonald and drummer Dale Crover play in both bands) which took them to the UK, Europe, and Australia.

Fast forward to 2018: The band is hard at work putting the finishing touches on a new album to be released on Merge in late summer of 2019! It’s the first collection of new Redd Kross songs since 2012’s Researching the Blues. And prior to the new album, Third Man Records will be reissuing vinyl editions of the currently unavailable 1990s albums Phaseshifter and Show World in the spring. 2019 is shaping up to be a huge year for the band!

In the meantime, Redd Kross will embark on a 12-date tour of the West Coast and Southwest in December—including their first run of PNW dates since 2013—in support of the Merge reissues of Teen Babes from Monsanto and Hot Issue. Joining them will be the Dale Crover Band (featuring Steven McDonald on bass) who released 2017’s The Fickle Finger of Fate on Joyful Noise Records.

Merge reissuing two Redd Kross albums in December

On December 7, Merge Records will make two elusive classics by California legends Redd Kross widely available for the first time!

Hot Issue contains a dozen turn-of-the-century new digs and old finds recorded by the band in Hollywood between 1980 and 2007. Available on limited-edition translucent fluorescent green Peak Vinyl, licorice black vinyl, and CD, this collection of top-quality recordings features Redd Kross rarities and focuses on the band’s most explosively creative period from the early ’90s straight through to Researching the Blues, all mastered from the original source tapes for optimal audio fidelity by Bill Inglot and Dave Schultz at d2. An energetic compilation created to be a complete play experience with unreleased and rare tracks unearthed from the Jeff McDonald archives, Hot Issue is a total must for all Redd Kross fans around the world!

Hotter than anything printed by a Hearst daily, the 12-song “Versión Especial” of Redd Kross’ Teen Babes from Monsanto is all art, no filler, direct from the source, pure from the tap. Available on CD or engraved on your choice of virgin black vinyl or limited-edition translucent pink Peak Vinyl, the album features specially designed packaging that allows you to choose between two different front covers with just a flip of the wrist! Experience vintage teenaged Redd Kross as presented by Monsanto: 100% genuine, chemically inspired brilliance fueled by processed junk food.

Pre-order these albums individually in the Merge store, or reserve both as a Peak Vinyl bundle on the cheap! Long live Redd Kross!

Redd Kross doing Born Innocent with Janet and Tracy to benefit Janet’s cancer treatment. Come join us and please share! xoxo

Long time friend and former drummer of Redd Kross, Janet Housden is currently being treated for breast cancer.    Janet is a BADASS, she’s not gonna take this crap sitting down,…unless its sitting on a drum stool of course.

So we at Redd Kross HQ, have decided the best way to help her fight this bullshit is to reunite, for one night only, with our 1982 line up, featuring Janet Housden (on drums), Tracy Lea (on guitar), as well as Jeff and Steve to perform our Born Innocent album in its entirety at the Echo in Los Angeles on Sunday March 24th.  It will be an afternoon show so plan accordingly.

We are asking people that would like to attend the concert to donate $50 to this campaign and you will reserve your spot on the list for the gig.   If you donate multiples of $50 please confirm how many spots on the list you are reserving.  If you can not make the gig but would still like to support Janet, know that all donations (after GoFundMe commissions) are going directly to her.

Of course we know that battling cancer is tricky and unpredictable business.   She has already gone through several rounds of Chemo, next is an operation to remove the cancer cells and then she will follow that with radiation treatment.    We have scheduled the show for a time when, if all goes as planned, Janet should be well on the mend, cancer free and sporting a sassy new haircut.   Janet and all of us are looking forward to having a celebratory night of friends, family, music and kicking cancer’s ass!  Please join us.

Janet would also like people to know, she does have insurance and some savings, she is not destitute or anything.  But while she is in treatment she’s without work and income.  We want to relieve her of as much extra stress as possible while she is fighting this battle.   Please support her, no amount is too small.  Much Love xoxo
