The Who To Release New Album In October

Hop on your Vespa and go beat the shit out of some rockers, because The Who is back! Universal Republic Records is now set to release the first studio album from the legendary band in twenty-five years. We will get to hear the new tunes in just a few months, as Endless Wire will land in stores on October 31. The album will include all new songs, including some music collected from a twenty-nine minute operatic work.

The remaining original duo of Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have also announced their first world tour in nearly twenty years. The tour lineup will also include Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr's son) on drums, Simon Townshend (Pete's brother) on guitar, Pino Palladino on bass and John Bundrick on keys. Some of the dates in North America will also feature Peeping Tom as the opener, which is damn cool!
