Public Image Ltd. is preparing for a full-on tour of North America this year. Details are scarce, but SlicingUpEyeballs points out that the band will indeed be touring in support of their new album This Is PiL, and they are have a European PiL tour lined up for July and August, so no word on whether the PiL tour in North America will happen before or after that. John Lydon on the new album: ''Well, 12 songs, where do I begin? Everything and anything that attracts my attention. 'One Drop' is about my early youth in Finsbury Park. Fantastic! Hello, we're all teenagers don't you forget it! At any age, stay young. 'Lollipop Opera' is basically a beautiful bunch of background noise and music to sum up Britain and all its wonderful ambidextrous-ness! 'The Room I Am In' well that's about drugs and council flats. And there's a tragedy that still continues. 'I Must Be Dreaming' Well, you know, I must be to put up with these governments.''
