Psychobilly act HorrorPops have announced details on their "It's All Hallows Eve Tour" of the US and Canada. The group will be joined by Beat Union for the first half of the tour and by Longway on the final LA.

In addition the band commented on the costs of touring and the health of one of their on-stage dancers:

We're happy to be able to tell you that our dancer Rita-tah is better! She's been working hard to get her body to do what she wants with out being in pain and we can't wait to tour with her and Tweek again. The bad news is, that due to gas prices etc we can't bring them on the whole tour. It might sound crazy, but the economy actually also affects bands and venues (last tour we spend $13200 on gas alone). We're going to keep touring to keep our name alive and hope for better times where we can again be the 5 people on stage that we like to be. We hope you understand and we promise you to still keep giving you one hell of a show. Rita-tah and Tweek will be joining us on quite a few shows on this tour, but how many and where all depends on how much merch we sell, so go buy a shirt to support your favorite band!

The band released Kiss Kiss Kill Kill earlier this year.
