The Mr. T Experience are back and will be releasing a new album King Dork Approximately, their first in 12 years! The album will be released October 4th as an exclusive download, with the purchase of the paperback version of Portman’s young adult novel of the same name. The vinyl release of King Dork Approximately will arrive in stores in spring of 2017. Doctor Frank will be taking the band on the road with select tour dates across North America!
“Dr. Frank” Portman is quick to tell you this isn’t a MTX reunion:
“We never did go away. With the collapse of the music industry, during the release of our last album in 2004; it made it very difficult to fund recordings and at the time I embarked on a successful literary career.”
Why release the new record as an exclusive with the book?
“No one knows how to sell records any more, and to a degree the same goes for books. We’re trying to figure out a way to do it that is interesting and suits the material!”
