Through June and July, the tour will reach also Montana, Washington, British Columbia and Oregon.

“friends! for over 150 years, the firm of claypool and lennon has been providing clients with only the finest in rock and roll delirium and stark raving madness,” wrote James on Twitter. “this summer i am excited and honored to say that we will be teaming up to offer a brand new twist on one of the most time tested and proven methods for inducing beautifully swirling and whirling delightfully delicious delirium: the healing power of rock and roll!”

The Claypool Lennon Delirium will also embark on their own headlining dates in April. The group will start in April at Danforth Music Hall in Toronto and finishing up in New Orleans before joining forces with James.
