HEALING SIXES, featuring Jason Bonham on drums, are putting together a short 4-6 week club tour of the U.S. in preparation for their Enormosound album release on Holland's Corazong Records.The SIXES are focusing on venues east of the Mississippi starting October 1st and ending the middle of November in Toronto, Canada. Doug Henthorn, singer/guitarist of HEALING SIXES, explained how Jason Bonham got involved with the band. "We'd lined up a string of East Coast dates opening for Jason's old band back in '99. Soon enough, Jason was consistently showing up early to check out the show. We hit it off right away with him and before long we'd all end up out and about at the end of each night. One night, Jason, Eric, Chaz, and I were at an after-hours club in St. Louis when the band there asked us if we wanted to sit in. So we got up as a three-piece band, with me singing, and did an impromptu version of 'Foxy Lady'. I think we all knew it was just the beginning. Jason and I kept in contact after the tour and by Christmas of that year he'd told me he wanted in. He flew over for another jam and it was undeniable. The combination was monstrous." Enormosound is scheduled for an October release in Europe and Canada. A U.S. release date has yet to be determined.
