Greg Prato of Billboard.com is reporting that punk pioneers the DEAD BOYS are planning on doing about a week's worth of gigs in May starting around May 8 up in Montreal. "The confirmed dates so far are Montreal, Toronto, London and Hamilton," guitarist Cheetah Chrome told Billboard.com."And then while we're there, we're going to do a couple of long rehearsals, and then for a couple of days, we're going to record things — just mess around in the studio and see what we come up with," he added. "We have no idea what to expect from it, but we figure we'll run some ideas around at soundchecks, block out 10 hours and see what we've got at the end of the day." Instead of attempting to replace late singer Stiv Bators (who died in 1990) with a new frontman, Chrome will continue to split lead vocal duties with second guitarist Jimmy Zero. "Stiv is not going to be replaced for any reason. We're still dodgy about calling it 'the DEAD BOYS' [but] that's kind of what we're stuck with," he said with a laugh. Read more at Billboard.com.
