Adding to the list of international acts announcing their return to Australian shores, Pennywise have confirmed a 2022 Australia tour.

The American punk rock band shared that they will be performing seven shows with punk band Circle Jerks across Victoria, NSW, QLD, South Australia and Western Australia.

The popular band was last in the country in 2018 for their 20th Anniversary Straight Ahead tour which saw them play a number of sold out shows Australia wide.

Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge has shared his excitement about returning to Australia in a press release.

“Finally Pennywise gets to come back to our home away from home, Australia!,” the statement began.

It continued: “Where the beer flows nonstop, along with the chaos. Never a dull moment on a Pennywise tour down under… only one thing could make it better than usual, and that would be coming to town with our mentors and long-time friends THE CIRCLE JERKS!!! They are back with a vengeance!

“This is gonna be an off the fucking hook nonstop party! And we can’t wait! Get your tix, get on the booze, and get in the pit, we’re coming for you fuckers!!!!!”
