Long running southern California punk band Lagwagon dropped a ferocious new album RAILER alongside announcing an Australian & NZ March 2020 headlining tour with shows happening in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Adelaide plus Auckland & Wellington.
The title of the influential punk five-piece’s ninth album, RAILER 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.
