Black Flag

No heroes.

BLACK FLAG has reformed and is in the process of putting finishing touches on a new album with founder Greg Ginn on guitar, Ron Reyes on vocals, Gregory Moore on drums and Dale Nixon on bass.
Gregory Moore was never a member of Black Flag, but played in the post-BF project Gone with Ginn. "Dale Nixon" on bass essentially means that the there is no set bassist, as Greg Ginn credited himself with the psuedonym on My War and countless other BF recordings. From a release:
While Dale has lent his skills to the new album, he is currently contractually obligated for a stint on Celebrity Rehab. Still, as he has always done in the past, he will continue to provide insight and spiritual guidance to the current bass player.
What's more? The band has ALSO announced that they will embark on a 2013 US tour in addition to previously discussed dates. The first US date has been set for Muddy Roots Music Festival in Tennessee, on 8/31/13 with more announced soon.

Ugh.

Make sure not to confuse Black Flag with Flag.

This is hilarious.

This has to be a practical joke by Ginn. It just doesn't make any sense.

Greg Ginn, while I have always stood up for you against all the people calling you a prick, I now join the others. You are a douche.

rollins? no.
dez, yes.

Fantastic if this was a new band - Ginn's Royal We crap is awful, but to call it BLACK FLAG is sad. Just stop.

This will be dumb, regardless of Rollins.

Sim Cain was the drummer on the 1st 2 GONE Lps.

Yeah, just reform GONE and stop this BF madness.

We all (except for 11:19, who clearly spent a lot of time at Hot Topic) seem to agree: better without Rollins, but shit-headed idea nonetheless.

More like a "Red Flag" for something I should totally avoid.

They should go on tour with the Dead Kennedys, and call it "Time To Cash In 2013 Tour)

BACK FLAB

no Rollins no good

I don't get it. Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski and Bill Stevenson are playing as FLAG (w/ Stephen Egerton of Decendents on guitar). Why can't Ginn just suck it up and play with them?

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2013 1:26 PM

If Ginn goesnt dust off that old Peavey PA amp (like the one pictured above) it just ain't that Black Flag sound. Need I say more?

Posted by tredxcore | January 28, 2013 1:31 PM

i saw gone open for black flag in 86 whatever

Reyes is my personal favorite vocalist of Black Flag, but this is just embarassing.

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2013 2:23 PM

Seriously? A new album with Reyes? This guy was in the band for like TWO WEEKS.

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2013 4:08 PM

Nope. Nuh uh. No Sir. No fucking way.


EVERYBODY SHUT THE FUCK UP.


BACK FLAB WINS.

I hope they play some Dio.

Posted by Richard Heck | January 28, 2013 5:08 PM

Also, Ginn's a total dick for not giving Sammy Hagar a shot at the mike. You know he would NAIL "Armageddon Man".

Posted by Richard Heck | January 28, 2013 6:23 PM

"Old men playing teenage music for money." Bingo!

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2013 7:28 PM

when Ginn pays Husker Du their royalties and they get their masters back so they can properly remaster and re-release their far more influential catalogue (face it), I'd even consider considering any music that Ginn might make with something called "Black Flag."

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2013 10:18 PM

Heard Ginn's using tube amps now.

RIP my innocence.

I thought Greg Ginn was still working on his solo albums, "Ginntagious," "Out of Ginntroll" and Ginnspiracy."

Posted by Crosseyed Sniper | January 29, 2013 4:55 AM

Can I be hopefully pessimistic? I think that's where I fall on this idea..
If, on tour they're playing old Black Flag songs, that would be cool.. I fear that these guys don't have it in them anymore though.

Reyes vs. Rollins, who cares, it's a punk band, it's not like one of them has a vastly superior vocal range. I did like Rollins BF quite a bit but the other vocalists fit the band too..

this is completely pathetic. ron reyes was probably the worst flag vocalist. keith morris woudlve been the better choice. why not anthony or c'el for bass and drums? dale fucking nixon? a fake bassist? jesus fucking christ. ginn is a douchebag. hes playing alton illinois on my birthday and im gonna go down to the show and spit in his face. fuck that loser.

^ I imagine you also slay dragons and bed hott chicks in your dreams too?

You are a fool if you give $ to Mr. Ginn and his merry band of black scab.
