Bob Weir says that RatDog may change their name soon. Speaking on yesterday’s episode of Sirius XM’s Tales From The Golden Road, the guitarist told David Gans and Gary Lambert:

[Steve Kimock is] part and parcel of our effort to more or less reinvent RatDog. This will have to be a work in progress over a sustained period of time. I think one of the things we can do to kick that off is to go back to our old name Scaring The Children, which I think we’re going to do this year.

Weir later told the hosts, “RatDog—soon to be Scaring The Children again—we’ll be back in the Seattle area soon enough.”

As previously reported, Bob Weir and RatDog will kick off their first tour since 2009 at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, PA this Friday, February 14. The band also recently took the stage at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA
