Last year, Saliva reunited with vocalist Josey Scott at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival following the singer’s announcement that he was returning to music. Now, Scott has announced he’ll hit the road in North America with his own version of Saliva, performing Saliva songs with a new band, according to ThePRP and Blabbermouth.
Scott’s tour dates are spread across the year and begin this Saturday (May 13) for a weekend in Texas. Last month, the already-established Saliva said they would continue following the March death of their last remaining original member, guitarist Wayne Swinny.
See Scott’s dates toward the bottom of this post.
“Super grateful that I have the opportunity to get out on tour again and play for those of you who loved all of these songs we did back in the day!” the latest post on the Facebook page Josey Scotts Saliva says. “I appreciate each and everyone of you! See you in Katy, Texas and Fort Worth, Texas THIS WEEKEND!!!”
Since their latest studio album, 2018’s 10 Lives, the already-established Saliva have released several singles with vocalist Bobby Amaru. Those include last year’s “Crows” and “Revelation Man.” They recently revealed their intention to complete a new album using material they were working on with Swinny before his death. Scott’s 2022 reunion with them was apparently a one-off after plans for a more substantial reunion were mothballed.
