Ween, the ever-experimental and edgy Philadelphia rock band, is back. With frontman Gene Ween(born Aaron Freeman) in recovery from substance abuse, the brilliantly oddball group will play three shows this weekend at 1STBANK Center, and the list of subsequent dates is growing. Other than a statement last fall and a recent Facebook post from Dean Ween (né Mickey Melchiondo), which promised that the three Broomfield shows will include 94 songs and no repeats, Ween’s reunion — according to its management company — has been interview-free.
2016 just started, but already big things are on the horizon for Ghost. The band’s single “Cirice” was recently nominated for a Best Metal Performance Grammy Award and a new trailer has arrived online proclaiming, “We are heard. Our hour has come.” In addition, the masked rockers will continue to spread their message on tour this spring.
Shaky camera footage and pictures appear to show a mysterious Yeti-style creature.
