Descendents to Embark on 2016 U.S. Tour
Descendents have announced a fresh batch of U.S. tour dates to support their upcoming album, Hypercaffium Spazzinate.
Hypercaffium Spazzinate is Descendents’ first new album in 12 long years, the most recent being 2004’s Cool to Be You. Hypercaffium Spazzinate will see a July 29 release via Epitaph Records, so fans will have plenty of time to buzz over the album before Descendents hit the road.
“I think one of the things that’s kept us inspired over the years is having the music as an outlet for our frustrations,” says vocalist Milo Aukerman. “Having the freedom to completely blow my voice out every time I recorded was a very positive experience for me.”
Descendents’ 2016 U.S. tour will be comprised of 14 dates across two months. The legendary punk band will start off at Denver’s Riot Fest in early September and finish off Nov. 12 in Portland, Ore. Opening acts will change depending on the city, but will include Modern Baseball, Beach Slang, F---ed Up and Bully.
