Punk legends Black Flag are heading to the UK in October. Whats more, it will be the first time that the hardcore pioneers have played the UK since 1984!Understandably, there have been a few line-up changes since the hardcore pioneers formed in 1976 in Hermosa Beach, California. However, some things never change. All of their material, including seven studio albums and two live albums, have been on Greg Ginn’s independent label, SST Records. Ginn is Black Flag’s guitarist, primary songwriter, and sole continuous band member.
Vocal duties will be undertaken by Mike Vallely who first sang with Black Flag in 2013 before joining full-time as the band’s fifth vocalist in 2014.
Their incredibly patient UK fans will be hoping to hear classics like Rise Above, Nervous Breakdown and Black Coffee, as well as new material from the record that the band are currently recording.
