The Ergs! touring for the 15th anniversary of ‘dorkrockcorkrod,’ including Riot Fest
Beloved Mikey Erg-fronted pop-punkers The Ergs! broke up in 2008, but they’ve played a smattering of reunion shows since then, including Asbury Lanes in 2010, two sets at the 2016 edition of The Fest, and a few 2017 shows, one of which was supporting Descendents at Starland Ballroom. They were just announced as part of the 2019 Riot Fest lineup, and in addition to that, they’re heading out on a rare short tour this fall, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their debut LP, dorkrockcorkrod. That tour kicks off in Philly on September 7 and hits Brooklyn, Washington DC, and Asbury Park before wrapping up with a pair of shows in Allston, MA. See all of The Ergs! dates below.
The last releases from The Ergs! are from 2016: a 7″ EP, Goddamn Death Dedication, and the collection Hindsight is 20/20, My Friend Vol. 2: OK, Enough Reminiscing. Stream both, along with dorkrockcorkrod, below.
