John Frusciante & Omar Rodriguez Lopez Tour

Guitar god (and former Red Hot Chili Pepper member) John Frusciante has just announced the formation of a new band, called Kimono Kult. Kimono Kult is Frusciante’s first official band since left RHCP in 2009—he’s only released solo material since then. Also in the band? Former At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López, Teri Gender Bender on vocals and guitar, Nicole Turley on bass, Dante White-Aliano on guitar, and Laena Geronimo on bass and violin. The band’s debut EP, Hiding in the Light is set for digital release March 4 via Neurotic Yell Records. The label describes the EP as “four songs of electro/dub/afro-beat/avant-freak/jazz-like conversations of instrumental ecstasy” (whatever that means), and the first single, “Todo Menos El Dolor” is out right now (and you can hear it below). With new albums come tour dates to support said albums, so stay tuned for the latest touring news for Kimono Kult.

He’s also had a very active solo career, producing ten solo albums and five EPs. He’s ranked at No. 18 on Rolling Stone’s “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and was voted “The Best Guitarist of the Last 30 Years” in a 2010 BBC poll. Frusciante was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of RHCP in 2012.
