Quickies: More Tours, Album Sales, and David Lee Roth’s Busted Face

Hello, everyone. After a rare early weekday off from Quickies, I’m back. And, of course, it’s April Fools Day. That said, I have no idea whether or not the below articles are legit. Let’s be real, I don’t look into these things that much. I invite you to be as skeptical as I am.

It’s not bad. I gotta admit. Their self-titled EP is available now.

They’ve since become extremely polarizing, inspiring volumes of thinkpieces that collectively exceed in length any treatises frontman Hunter Hunt-Hendrix has written in his entire life. And on this third album, The Ark Work, the band has managed to distill every divisive element of their sound and persona, not to mention created a thrilling and beautifully confusing work.
