Fishbone Goes Commercial As Tour Looms

Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher will be putting themselves back in the public eye in a big way with a high-profile summer tour in support of the band's new album, and now a TV commercial with Priceline frontman (and former starship captain) William Shatner.

The veteran funk-rockers appear with several other musicians in the spot, including Louise Post of Veruca Salt, Ben Folds and Lisa Loeb.

During the taping of the spot, Fisher and Loeb performed covers for the cast and crew between takes.

"Hopefully, me and Lisa Loeb will continue to pursue our duets record concept, to be produced by Dweezil Zappa," Fisher joked.

Look for the spot to start airing in the coming weeks.

The news of the commercial comes as Fishbone is preparing to hit the road with The Red Hot Chili Peppers/Stone Temple Pilots tour (see "Fishbone To Return With 'Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx'") and is set for the

opening slot on the The Red Hot Chili Peppers/Stone Temple Pilots tour (see "Chili Peppers Add Tour Dates With STP, Fishbone"). The outing is slated to kick off on June 30 in Saratoga, New York.
