On the road, the masked mystery man known for the fried chicken bucket he wears on his head will be joined by Dan Monti (bass, programming) and Pinchface (drums). Together they will perform various Buckethead favorites as well as instrumental versions of tracks from the upcoming Buckethead & Friends release Enter The Chicken, due October 25 on Serjical Strike Records, the label fronted by Serj of System of a Down.
