Hot off the hells of the announcement that Black Flag was reuniting to play Hevy Fest this year, it appears that fans can expect more than just a few sporadic festival reunion shows from the iconic hardcore punk act. Singer Ron Reyes has officially announced that the band (founder Greg Ginn on guitar, Ron Reyes on vocals, Gregory Moore on drums and Dale Nixon on bass) are currently putting the “finishing touches on a new album.”
The seeds of this reformation were apparently planted when Reyes invited Ginn to perform with him at his birthday party some two and half years ago. The two vowed at that time to work on some songs together. The fruition of those efforts will culminate in the release of the new album later this year.
Fans can expect to see Black Flag recording and touring extensively both in the US and abroad. Along with the previously announced Hevy Fest, the band will be headlining the Ruhrpott Rodeo in Hünxe, Germany on May 18th 2013 and headlining the Muddy Roots Music Festival in Tennessee, Saturday August 31st, 2013.
We’ll keep you posted as more details surface.
