Phish will return to the road this June when they launch their 2012 summer tour of North America.
The tour will kick off with a two-night stand at DCU Center in Worcester, MA (June 7 & 8) and a headlining performance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, which will be held in Manchester, TN June 7-10.
The run will include three consecutive dates - June 15, 16 & 17 - at Atlantic City's 142-acre Bader Field, which was formerly the site of the first U.S. municipal airport for both seaplanes and land-based planes. Centrally located on the Eastern seaboard, Atlantic City offers a wide range of attractions and amenities, including gaming, fine dining, spas, pristine beaches and the city's historic boardwalk.
On April 21, Phish will release Junta, its first full-length studio album, as a Limited Edition Deluxe 3-LP vinyl set. Junta, which marks the band's second release in conjunction with Record Store Day, will be available exclusively at participating independently owned record stores. Originally self-released on cassette tape in May 1989, Junta was remastered and rereleased as a double CD and cassette in October 1992. It was subsequently certified Platinum but, until now, has never been heard on vinyl. Each LP will be pressed onto 180g audiophile grade vinyl and a free MP3 download of the entire album (transferred from the new vinyl master) will be included.
