Only in these crazy times might a band tour its ‘new’ album two years after it was released, but that’s what the Meanies will be doing when they hit the road to finally give Desperate Measures a proper live airing.
Desperate Measures was released in July 2020 (on Cheersquad Records & Tapes), by which time the shit had already hit the fan. Their BETTER LATE THAN NEVER DESPERATE MEASURES TOUR was first announced a year ago, when things looked like they’d cleared. It got bumped a couple of times, and announced again in November 2021 for this year. Then Omicron came along, blowing out January and causing another reshuffle. So here we go again.
