Meat Puppets Expand with Rat Farm

Though the band now resides in Austin, Meat Puppets and the brothers Kirkwood (Curt and Cris) will be forever tied to the Valley of the Sun whence they sprung.

That connection has gotten stronger to with the addition of Curt's son Elmo--a Tempe resident and guitarist in local bands Flamingo and Kirkwood Dellinger --now an official member of the touring band. It's a new era for the band, which is releasing Rat Farm April 16 on Megaforce.
