On the heels of an opening slot for Queens of the Stone Age, metalhead-cum-bluesman Dax Riggs will return to the road with a string of U.S. dates throughout the month of February, kicking off in the longstanding rock haven of Toledo, Ohio.
After the demise of his former band, deadboy & the Elephantmen, Riggs went on to release his solo debut last summer, We Sing of Only Blood or Love, on Fat Possum. Even before that, he spent time fronting the seminal Southern sludge-metal band, Acid Bath. Drummer Andy McLeod will join Dax once again, with other touring members to be announced shortly.
