Weirdest or Best Tour Combo of the Summer?




In a strange twist of musical fate, the electronic metal thrashers of Genghis Tron have been tabbed to support the teenage-girl-scream-inducing dance outfit The Faint starting in Worcester, MA on August 20th.

From the press release: Genghis Tron will first join Omaha, NE's The Faint for a number of shows on their upcoming headlining tour. Genghis Tron will meet up with The Faint, along with Jaguar Love, in Worcester, MA on August 20th, touring through the Northeast and Midwest.

We here at the Tripwire aren't sure if we should be scratching our heads or wishing we lived in the cities they will hit together, but either way, it will make for an interesting mix of fans. After the few supporting slots, the Tron will head out on their own headlining tour to round out the fall.
