Okilly Dokilly, the Ned Flanders themed metal band that pays homage to the popular benevolent neighbor on The simpsons, have just confirmed that they will be on indefinite hiatus after a farewell tour called “Tourdilly Do ’22”.
Reflecting on the unlikely success they encountered, the band said as a collective, âWhen we started Okilly Dokilly our goal was to play maybe two gigs. We imagined being the third or fourth group on a seven-band concert. go out in our sweaters and confuse the 12 or 13 people there, then have a great story. Things turned out a little differently. “
In 2019, the group’s particular vision for a band came full circle in 2019 when they were featured in the episode “White Win Spritzer” of The simpsons. Even so, all good things come to an end, at least for now, and Okilly Dokilly will be embarking on an American tour with Steaksauce Mustache from April 14 to May 7.
See these stops below.
âOkilly Dokilly did a lot more than I expected,â singer Head Ned said. âI’m really grateful to everyone who was a part of it. And especially to everyone who came to our shows to say howdilly doodilly. We’ve been touring around the clock since 2016 and last year I became a dad. So it’s time for a break. It’s time for me to shave Ned’s mustache and grow daddy’s mustache. “
From all of us at Loudwire, congratulations to you and your family, Chef Ned!
Signing up for the session, Head Ned added, âWe just want everyone to know that we won’t be touring or making new music in the next few years. I don’t know if or when we will be back, but what about it? ‘moment, that’s’ too stupid’.
