The Dead Milkmen to play new album ‘The King in Yellow’ in Philadelphia next month

Punk jokesters The Dead Milkmen will hold a belated hometown album-released party for The King in Yellow — their first album in 15 years, which the band self-released in March but is now set for wider distribution — when they perform the record in its entirety (“with limited commercial interruptions”) at a Philadelphia club next month.

The Milkmen — original members Joe Jack Talcum, Dean Clean and Rodney Anonymous, plus bassist Dan Stevens, who replaces the late Dave Blood — will play the album Dec. 10 at Philadelphia’s Kung Fu Necktie, according to the band’s website. Ticketholders also are promised a free download of the 17-track album.

The band released The King in Yellow — the first new studio album from the Milkmen since 1995’s Stoney’s Extra Stout (Pig) — via its website on March 19; you can still buy it as a download or on CD that way. While the album has only been sold digitally at the major online outlets, the CD also will be available at beginning Dec. 6.

  • Saw them in Long Beach a few months ago, they are not to be missed. What a treat for Phily fans. Maybe they will actually ‘tour’ the album at some point.
