LA punk rock super group OFF! have had busy year off the back of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. Summer 2013 will see them bring their explosive old-school rock show to the national Big Day Out, and it’s been announced they’ll also headline sideshows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
Here’s the rest of the official word:
Following up their successful introductory tour of Australia last summer, Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks) and his troupe of punk rock royalty are primed to spit fire, riffs and fury at punters, playing breakneck tunes from their lauded ‘First 4 EP’s’ release and debut self-titled album. Pitchfork Media said it succinctly: “And as long as Keith Morris has occasion to scream, you oughta listen, and listen good.”
Having spent most of 2012 fulfilling a brutal touring schedule with legends like Refused and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and playing festivals like Coachella, OFF! are in impressive live shape.
Guitarist Dimitri Coats says so appropriately of OFF!; “There’s a lot of soul in this, we’re not fucking around”. Don’t fuck around, get tickets quick to witness what will be one of the live highlights of 2013.
