Long running southern California punk band Lagwagon dropped a ferocious new single today called Surviving California – from their upcoming album, RAILER alongside announcing an Australian & NZ March 2020 headlining tour with shows happening in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide & Perth plus Auckland & Wellington.
The new single “Surviving California, was inspired by the city where front-man Joey Cape now lives and serves as both a personal and political treatise on the socio-economic state of America today. The title of the influential punk five-piece’s ninth album, RAILER is due out October 4, 2019 on Fat Wreck Chords - Pre-order HERE. It captures the spirit of the band’s early days – youthful but jaded, frantic but exhausted, visceral yet cerebral. As Cape explains, ‘railer’ is “a funny word from childhood that means ‘silly bad’, like lame” and it captures the sense of throwback that flows throughout its 12 songs.”
Bred from the long lineage of punk bands out of Southern California, Lagwagon became one of the most influential, pioneering the now-famous ‘Fat Wreck sound’ with their speedy drums, guitar virtuosity and undeniable melodies. Don’t miss legendary punks Lagwagon on their Australia and New Zealand March 2020 tour.
