Two (Yes, Two!) Black Flag Reunions Detailed

Written by Mike Hohnen on January 28, 2013

Black Flag fans are going to be stoked on this. Regardless of whether you preferred founding member Keith Morris or his replacement Ron Reyes, you’re in luck – both frontmen have announced they will be forming and reforming their own versions of Black Flag, and both have announced tour dates.

Morris, who originally left the group to front The Circle Jerks and currently tours the world with punk rock supergroup OFF!, will be fronting the modernised version of Black Flag, to be known as Flag. Along with Morris, Flag will also consist of Chuck Dukowski and Bill Stevenson, along with Stephen Egerton of the Descendants.

Flag have announced a series of shows throughout Europe, including Monster Bash in Germany and a run of US shows. Though Black Flag never toured Australia, Morris has found a new love for our land having toured here with OFF!, so a tour Down Under is in no way off the cards at this point.

It has been pointed out that Flag was formed in direct response to the overwhelming approval of the crowd who witnessed an impromptu gig in 2011.

As if that wasn’t enough, Ron Reyes will be reuniting with founding member Greg Ginn on guitar and Roberto “Robo” Valverde on the skins, still performing under the moniker Black Flag. They will also be touring and are already confirmed for UK’s Hevy Fest.

No word yet on whether Rollins will be getting in on this. Over the decades, the band has had a high turnover rate, with enough ex-members to form at least one more Black Flag reunion act…though a third reformation seems unlikely at this stage.
