Post-punk heroes Public Image Ltd are back in action next month with the release of new LP What the World Needs Now…, and frontman John Lydon has equipped the band’s North American tour announcement with a different kind of release: flatulence.

Welcome back to America.

“Bring a gas mask and I’m going to fart continuously,” Lydon says in a press release to promote PiL’s Halloween night appearance at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans. “P.S.: I want to see Donald Trump misrepresented with the greatest possible glee.”

It all can be arranged, but those in New England will have to make travel plans to catch wind of Lydon’s antics. The PiL tour hits 20 North American cities between Halloween and November 29, but skips over Boston, instead playing Montreal, Toronto, Philadelphia, New York, and elsewhere.

Plan accordingly, and check out PiL’s recent single “Double Trouble” after their full run of dates, via Pitchfork.
