Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
With seven studio albums under their belt, The Descendents will take over the iconic south London venue next month for a one-off show. Formed in 1977 in Manhatten Beach, California, their legendary blend of surf-rock-pop-punk has guaranteed them a firm spot in every punk-lovers heart.
Their latest release Hypercaffium Spazzinate began taking shape after the band ended an extended hiatus to play live in 2010. The album came to life over three years as the band sent tracks back and forth, occasionally meeting up in Karl and Bill’s adopted hometown of Fort Collins. And now they are preparing to bring their album to the UK this June for some energetic live shows.
Just last month they shared the lyric video for their own take on the current political situation with charity track Who We Are. The song takes aim at the American president and proceeds will go to ACLU, Planned Parenthood and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
With some of the sharpest songwriting yet, this punky foursome still have the same buzzing sound that never gets old. Be sure to catch them at London’s O2 Academy Brixton this summer.
