Controversial Indie/Noise Rock duo Royal Trux kicked off 2019 in classic Truxian style, announcing its first new album since 2000 and also the postponement of their 2019 tour dates. Those initial dates were bagged due to “some unresolved issues arising from a past arrest” (singer Jennifer Herrema said she was just happy to avoid jail time and that, “Shit could definitely be worse”), but they’ve now been rescheduled.

Royal Trux’s 2019 North American tour is now slated to begin on May 10 at Cincinnati’s Woodward Theater. It will mark Herrema and Neil Hagerty’s first show in Cincinnati with Royal Trux in 20 years — the last time they were in town under the RT banner was a September 1999 gig at Sudsy Malone’s.

Tickets for the May 10 Woodward date go on sale today (Feb. 22) at 10 a.m. via

Royal Trux’s White Stuff will be released on the Fat Possum label next Friday, March 1. It’s the duo’s first Trux album of new material since 2000’s Pound for Pound. The band has shared a couple of tracks from the album so far, including “Get Used to This” (featuring Kool Keith) and the title track (listen to both below). It was also announced that Fat Possum’s reissue of 1998’s Accelerator (part of an extensive reissue campaign in 2018) will be available on vinyl on March 29.
