Having released their ATO debut Taken By Force earlier this year, Australian punks CIVIC have now announced their first-ever US tour. It goes down after they wrap up a UK/EU run in June. Tickets go on sale Friday (5/19).

Brooklyn gets a stop on October 7 at Elsewhere Zone One. All dates below.

CIVIC have also released a stirring, snarling cover of fellow Australian band Beasts of Bourbon's 1991 single "Chase The Dragon." The song is part of a series accompanying new book Half Deaf, Completely Mad: The Chaotic Genius of Australia's Most Legendary Producer by Tony Cohen with John Olson. CIVIC guitarist Lewis Hodgson says, “‘Chase The Dragon’ grabbed my attention when I was a kid. Seeing it on TV I thought it was real cool. The production is hard as fuck. Almost industrial. That snare sound. The film clip suits too. Obviously a classic now. Good seedy riff with good seedy lyrics. Fun to play too.” Listen to the cover and compare it to the original below.
