Nick Oliveri lists acoustic dates
Former Kyuss and QOTSA man prepares launch of solo album Leave Me Alone featuring guests from Motorhead, Ween, Mondo Generator and others
The tour ties in with the release of his single Human Cannonball Explodes, featuring Dean Ween, and its B-side Auto Pilot, featuring Mark Lanegan.
Oliveri's solo album Leave Me Alone will appear in September 15 via Schnitzel Records. He recorded the bass, drums, vocal and most of the guitar parts himself – but he's brought in a stack of friends and former colleagues as guest lead players.
They include Phil Campbell (Motorhead), Bruno Fevery (Kyuss, Vista Chino), Stephen Haas (Moistboyz), Mike Pygmie (Mondo Generator) and Marc Diamond (The Dwarves). Diamond's colleague Blag Dahlia has laid down a guest vocal track.
Oliveri plans to spend most of the year on the road, performing both acoustic shows and full-electric shows with his band Uncontrollable. He'll headline the acoustic stage at Download.
