Briefly Speaking...


"ATTENTION! You want it? You’ve got it! You wild heathens kept asking for it and we heard you loud and clear."


CKY (Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera and Matt Deis) are hitting the road this summer, as they announce a co-headlining tour with the post-hardcore outfit SLAVES. Support on this tour will be coming from Royal Thunder and Awaken I Am. Drummer Jess Margera offers a statement: 

“ATTENTION! You want it? You’ve got it! You wild heathens kept asking for it and we heard you loud and clear: We are proud to announce a full co-headlining North American tour with our friends in Slaves.”

He adds, “We’re bringing Royal Thunder and Awaken I Am along for the ride. It’s going to be a night of some thick ass rock n roll that you can brag about to all your fake ass ‘friends’ who stayed home watching  Netflix. This is gonna be the tour of all tours and this tour is all yours. Get a ticket NOW”

Tickets and a limited number of VIP meet and greet packages will be available Friday at 10AMlocal time. VIP packages will include meet and greets, exclusive merch items, autographs and more.

Last October, CKY released a music video for the single “Head For A Breakdown”. Directed by The Costa Sisters, this was the third music video from the band’s latest LP The Phoenix. The video was shot in and around London, the UK during the band’s near sell-out run earlier last year. Previously, their music video for “Replaceable” was released exclusively via LOUDWIRE and produced/directed by JOFFco.

The band initially released the “Replaceable” single earlier last summer exclusively viaSiriusXM’s OCTANE channel, “Head For A Breakdown via CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND and “Days Of Self Destruction” (Feat. Brent Hinds) before that. All can be streamed below.

CKY released The Phoenix on June 16, 2017, via eOne Music. The all-new LP is the first release since the band put out Carver City in 2009. The album was engineered and mixed atRancho De La Luna, the highly regarded recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA.

Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering a diverse performance as he claims a position that was clearly rightfully his to own. 

He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical and personal chemistry by fellow CKY cofounder, Jess Margera, the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well. The duo returned to their primary project refreshed and reenergized, with bassist Matt Deis (ex-All That Remains), who first joined CKY in 2005. 

Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing a legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters, lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance, with a broader group of musicians, athletes, and other creative types in the CKY family, both literally and figuratively.
