B-52s ready to debut 'Funplex'



52s_2 Sixteen years later, isn't it time for a new album from the world's greatest party band? Hell yeah! And here's the scoop on it.

The B-52s' new disc is called "Funplex" and it's due for release on Feb. 26. "Pump," the first track on the album, is set to be the first release, according to rumors around the web.

The band has also announced a few dates for a forthcoming tour. They play New York's Roseland Ballroom on Halloween night, the Roxy in LA on Nov. 16, Salt Lake City on Nov. 17 and the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville on Feb. 15.

Will Stuck in the 80s make a pilgrimage to the city it hates most to catch that February show? It's a distinct possibility. Just promise us they'll be no Lynryd Skynyrd on the radio on the trip up!
