California’s punk rock veterans No Use For A Name have announced details of an Australian tour for July and August.
The band, who formed way back in 1987 and have released nine albums, were influential on the melodic punk boom of the 90s, informing bands such as Blink 182 and the like. They are thought to have a new album up their sleeve for possible release later this year or early next. Their last album was 2008’s The Feel Good Record of the Year.
Undercover.fm reports that the four-piece will play a total of 15 dates in Australia and New Zealand. They come to these shores with a re-jigged line-up, with frontman Tony Sly enlisting new guitarist Chris Rest and new drummer Boz Rivera, while bass player Matt Riddle rejoins the band after suffering a nasty case of pancreatitis.
Aussies Frenzal Rhomb will support No Use For A Name on a couple of nights.
