Melodic hardcore greats Modern Life Is War returned from a hiatus with 2013’s Fever Hunting, and last year they reissued and toured their best album Witness for its 10th anniversary. They’ve now got a few shows coming up this September.

The first is a suicide prevention benefit show in Lake Como, NJ on September 3 at Paul’s Tavern with Tear It Up, A New Enemy, Blind Justice, and Free. Tickets are on sale now, and proceeds benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in honor of Bobby J. The band said, “Our return to NJ and a show in [Bobby’s] honor have both been a long time coming…not to mention the lineup.”

The next day, MLIW will play a Brooklyn show at Saint Vitus (9/4) with White Widows Pact. Tickets for that show go on sale today (8/12) at noon.

Their only other show is opening the Minneapolis stop of Descendents’ tour. Stream the band’s classic “The Outsiders (AKA Hell Is For Heroes Part I)” off the remastered Witness reissue:
