Crossover icons D.R.I. have announced the first batch of headlining dates to promote their as-yet-untitled upcoming EP, which is due for release early next year and will be the band’s first set of new material since 1995’s Full Speed Ahead. The current tour schedule below lists only shows in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, and according to their official website, D.R.I. will play shows in the East Coast and West Coast in March and April, and then return to the East Coast in May before playing next year’s Maryland Deathfest later that month.
D.R.I. recently parted ways with their longtime drummer Rob Rampy, who had been with the band for nearly 25 years and was replaced by Brandon Karns.
