Another Black Flag lineup to tour
Black Flag’s founding frontman Keith Morris and bassist Chuck Dukowski, along with later drummer Bill Stevenson, will tour in 2013 under the title Flag.
The news comes soon after founding guitarist Greg Ginn – the only member to feature in all Black Flag lineups – revealed his own iteration of the band and announced they’d play at the UK’s Hevy Fest in August.
Morris’ edition of the hardcore punk pioneers have confirmed shows in Europe and the US. The band is completed by guitarist Stephen Egerton, who played in the Descendents and All with Stevenson.
The band say in a statement: “Morris, Dukowski, Stevenson and Egerton, spurred by a crowd reaction to a surprise set in 2011, have formed Flag as a vehicle to continue performing the hardcore progenitors’ repertoire.
“Appearances include Belgium’s Groezrock Festival and Germany’s Monster Bash this April, with full US tour dates to follow throughout the year.
“The new outfit will play sets that pull from all eras of Black Flag’s history.”
