Following an infamous meltdown during a 2012 show in Vancouver, Aaron Freeman’s future looked bleak. Freeman—a.k.a. Gene Ween of the beloved cult act Ween—had seemingly finally let drugs and alcohol get the best of him, and the longtime addict soon announced the dissolution of his longtime band. But Freeman got sober in the wake of Ween’s breakup, and released a low-key album of Rod McKuen covers that seemed to point to better days ahead. Now, with a self-titled record of original songs from his new band—the appropriately named FREEMAN—scheduled for a July 22 release on Partisan Records, Freeman is taking to the road clean, sober, and reenergized. He’ll make a stop at Turner Hall Thursday, September 25. General admission tickets are $16 in advance and $18 the day of the show, and go on sale Friday, May 23 at noon. Listen to the first, late-Ween-esque, single from FREEMAN below.
