It’s been a few years between drinks for Aussie fans of Lagwagon, but now, the punk icons have announced their long-awaited return to our shores next year.
Ever since Lagwagon first formed back in 1990, the group have maintained a reputation as one of the most iconic examples of the ’90s punk scene.
Fronted by Joey Cape, the group were rather prolific in their early years, serving up classic albums like Hoss and Let’s Talk About Feelings, while tracks like ‘Violins’ set them aside as legends of the genre.
However, new material hasn’t quite been as forthcoming in recent years. While the band have toured frequently inbetween, 2015’s Hang served as their first studio album in nine years, while their accompanying Aussie tour would be their last for a while.
Although a trip to BIGSOUND in 2018 resulted in some solo shows for Joey Cape, Lagwagon now have good news for their Aussie fans, dropping a new track, and local tour dates earlier today.
Titled ‘Surviving California’, the new track is the latest taste from Lagwagon’s upcoming album Railer, which was announced back in July.
Featuring slick riffs, powerful choruses, and the crushing punk sound we’ve come to know and love, it’s the band at their very best.
To make things better though, fans will get a chance to rock out to the new record in person, with Lagwagon dropping a run of Aussie tour dates for 2020.
Kicking off in Sydney on March 13th, the band will hit up Brisbane, Melbourne, and Adelaide, before wrapping things up in Perth ahead of a quick jaunt over to New Zealand.
Tickets to Lagwagon’s first tour in almost five years go on sale through SBM Presents on Friday, September 13th, so don’t miss your chance to catch these punk icons next year!
