The Kickovers have announced their first ever U.S. tour dates opening for Local H. The band is lead by former Mighty Mighty Bosstones guitarist, Nate Albert along with former Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh, Johnny Rioux and Bosstones drummer Joe Sirois. Their debut record "Osaka" will be released on Fenway Recordings April 23rd.

So if I understand things correctly, Mikey Welsh pulled a Jimmy Hoffa number from Weezer in early September leaving Weezites wondering what the hell happened only to reappear months later in this unknown band. Hmm. I'm going to assume he's out of Special Goodness as well until I hear otherwise.
