Crusty Japanese hardcore favorites Forward (ex Death Side) return to our shores for a string of dates that kick off on the East Coast, heading southbound toward the storied Austin, TX festival Chaos in Tejas. The dates mark two US tours in as many years, following last year's stop for the same festival and subsequent DVD of the trek.
Forward recently released the "Devil's Cradle" / "What's the Meaning of Love" 7" via 540 Records. Copies of that are still available.
All known tour dates for Forward, who will do many of their shows with PDX's Long Knife, as well as ripping video of the maniacs in action, are below.
