Former Ween frontman Aaron Freeman is a free man and he’s heading out on tour later this summer. Back in 2012, Freeman announced that he was leaving Ween, the group is started with Mickey Melchiondo in the 80s. Since then, Freeman has stopped using his stage name Gene Ween and has worked on solo albums. That all changed, however, when he recently announced his newest band Freeman. The band is comprised of Freeman, Chris Boerner playing the guitars, Brad Cook and Joe Young on the bass, Dave Godowsky playing the keyboard, and drummer Kyle Keegan.

Freeman fans will have the opportunity to see the band across the US starting on September 4. The tour is in support of their newest album Freeman set to be released in on July 22. Virginia’s Lockn Festival will be the first of the many stops for the group. Stops in the Midwest include Cleveland, OH at Beachland Ballroom, Chicago’s Lincoln Hall on September 24, and Omaha, NE at Waiting Room. October’s shows will cover the West Coast, the South, and the Northeast. Philadelphia and New York City fans, be sure to check out the October 2 show at Johnny Brenda’s and the October 3 show at Bowery Ballroom. Californians, you’ve got three show options: San Diego’s Casbah, LA’s Roxy, and San Francisco’s The Independent.
