Imperial Teen drummer Lynn Perko has taken a time out from the rock and roll life to bake cookies, do laundry, and all of the other fun stuff that comes with getting married. According to Alltarnews, her replacement, at least for Imperial Teenís upcoming tour will be none other than former Hole drummer Patty Schemel. The group will kick off their tour in support of their latest release On on October 11 in Seattle and wrap on November 2 in NYC at the Merge CMJ night at the Knitting Factory.
