Dance-rockers the Bloodhound Gang will kick off a 15-city tour May 9 in St. Louis in support of Hooray for Boobies (Feb. 29).
After circling the Midwest, the band will head west, ending up in San Francisco on May 24. The group then will skip over to the East Coast for three radio-show performances at the end of May.
Opening most of the tour will be pop-punk band Nerf Herder, whose singer, Parry Gripp, provided the name for the Bloodhound Gang's album while on an earlier tour together.
Hooray for Boobies is a dance-rock album with a fixation on and frequent samples from '80s music and culture. "The Bad Touch", the album's first single, uses electronic beats to create a new-wave sound.
One Fierce Beer Coaster, the group's 1996 debut, featured the songs "Kiss Me Where It Smells Funny" and "I Wish I Was Queer So I Could Get Chicks."
