Poison Idea touring, including shows w/ Iron Reagan & Child Bite (who play w/ Negative Approach & Night Birds first)

Poison Idea

As we pointed out in a Housecore Horror update in June, Portland punk stalwarts Poison Idea cancelled a tour and announced a hiatus this year but quickly came back. Since then, the band added more dates happening after that festival, including a Northeast run in 2016.

That run includes NYC on February 14 at the Acheron with Child Bite and Chud (tickets) and a Long Island show on February 15 at Amityville Music Hall with Iron Reagan (tickets). All dates are listed below.

The tour is in continued support of this year’s Confuse & Conquer on Southern Lord, their first full length since 2006’s Latest Will and Tesament. If you haven’t heard that yet, you can stream it and watch the video for “Bog” below.

Child Bite, in addition to recording Celtic Frost covers with Phil Anselmo, have other dates including a run with another long-running hardcore outfit, Negative Approach. As discussed, that run hits The Acheron on November 29. Since we last spoke, Outskirts and the great Night Birds were added as support for that show. Tickets are still available. Updated dates are listed below.

As for Iron Reagan, they also have a stacked tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Goatwhore, Entheos and Artifical Brain coming up, which hits NYC on December 16 at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets for that show are still available. Their list of updated tour dates is below too.
