Damn...Get well quick Freddie! You need to stop by The Fringe Factory and scream for us again!

Damn...Get well quick Freddie! You need to stop by The Fringe Factory and scream for us again!

Hello everyone
We have some difficult news to share with you. Our bass player, lead singer and brother Freddie Dennis (The Screamer) recently suffered a series of two strokes. He was immediately hospitalized for two weeks and is now home in Seattle. Freddie is undergoing rehabilitation sessions four days every week and is making great progress. In line with this, The Sonics have cancelled all of our US shows that were being scheduled from now until the first of January 2018 and for the time being stopped work on our upcoming album. Future 2018 shows as well as a European tour are currently being scheduled and we will keep you all posted as to what decisions we will be making regarding playing those upcoming shows. Please check our tour schedule for information.

We have included a link to a funding site made by his incredible lady Gaye Guida-dennis to help Freddie defray some of the medical costs associated with this traumatic injury. In addition to being an incredible performer, those of you who know us and have stopped to chat before and after Sonics shows know that Freddie is an extremely friendly and happy guy. He always has time to stop what he's doing and chat with our fans, always with a big smile and his patented "Freddie Laugh." If you can't afford to send him a couple bucks, no worries, but Freddie would love to see a hello or a short note from you as he undergoes rehab. Having toured with Freddie continually for over 10 years we can tell you that his number one focus at all times is you..Our Sonic Fans. He absolutely lays it all on the line for you every single night. So if you can find time to shoot him a note, he will literally be overjoyed to receive it.

Thank you again
The Sonics
