BOYSETSFIRE celebrate 30th anniversary with a string of European shows with STRIKE ANYWHERE

1 min read

Delaware’s own post-hardcore heroes, Boysetsfire, are ramping up to celebrate a major milestone in 2024 – their 30th anniversary in the scene. Over three decades, these trailblazers have carved out a distinct niche, releasing an impressive catalog of six full-length studio albums and a slew of EPs and splits. They’ve also made their mark with numerous live albums and compilation appearances, showcasing their unwavering commitment to their art.

Notably, their journey includes relentless touring, with almost continuous performances for three decades, briefly pausing only between 2006/2007 and 2010.

In honor of this significant achievement, Boysetsfire has announced a special “Thirty And Counting” European tour, slated for October 2024.

Joining them on this celebratory trek are Richmond, Virginia’s punk rockers Strike Anywhere. Known for their politically charged lyrics and high-octane performances, Strike Anywhere is set to complement Boysetsfire’s intense shows perfectly.

The tour promises to be a blend of nostalgia and fresh energy, as audiences across Europe can expect to be treated to a repertoire spanning the band’s entire career. Starting in Wiesbaden, DE, at the Schlachthof on September 28th, the tour will weave through iconic venues like Amsterdam’s Melkweg and Berlin’s Huxleys Neue Welt, before wrapping up in Köln, DE, at the Palladium on October 5th. Other stops include Hamburg, München, Wien, and Karlsruhe, ensuring a wide reach across the continent.
