Bad Religion have been going strong since 1980, and they'll celebrate their 40th anniversary in 2020 on a co-headlining tour with Alkaline Trio. "This tour is extra special; not only are we celebrating our 40th anniversary, but we get to do it with Alkaline Trio, who are such a great band, really excited about this!" says Bad Religion frontman Greg Graffin. Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba adds, "Bad Religion was one of my first loves. I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard ‘Suffer’ around age 12. They are one of the very reasons I started playing punk rock music and continue to today. This tour is going to be epic on many levels. We’ve done Warped Tour and Festival shows many times over the years but this will be the first time it’s just us and I couldn’t be more thrilled!"
The tour begins in LA, and also hits Phoenix, Austin, Chicago, Toronto, and more, as well as a stop at Asbury Park's Convention Hall on April 10. Tickets for that show go on sale go on sale Friday (12/13) at noon, but you can get tickets early in the BrooklynVegan presale that starts Thursday (12/12) at 10 AM. Check back here Thursday morning for the presale password. All dates are listed below.
Bad Religion released their 17th album Age of Unreason earlier this year, and yesterday they got in the holiday spirit by releasing a video of Greg Graffin sitting by his tree and yule log as Bad Religion's 2013 Christmas album plays in the background. You can watch that right here:
