Vancouver band and industrial godfathers Skinny Puppy will be mounting their first tour in eight years starting in April 2023.

It will also be their last. After forty years of making heads swim and ears bleed, Skinny Puppy will be “end our run as a group” with their 40th anniversary tour, produced by Live Nation.

“It’s been eight long years since we’ve toured and there is no better way to end our run as a group than with a tour celebrating our 40th anniversary,” the group is quoted as saying in a statement.

The tour also features special guest Lead Into Gold from Paul Barker, bassist for frequent Skinny Puppy collaborators Ministry.

The tour starts with a swing through Texas on April 6 at San Antonio and April 7 in Houston. So far there are 24 dates listed from early April to early May, with more west coast dates forthcoming (though, curiously, nothing in Chicago, where industrial music experienced an explosion in popularity in the early 1990s).
