Hot off the announcement of Hypercaffium Spazzinate, their first new album in 12 years, Descendents have shared the details of a headlining North American tour this fall. The dates kick off September 15 in Minneapolis at First Avenue and wrap up November 12 in Portland at Roseland Theater. Tickets go on sale June 17 at 10am local venue time.
Descendents will also perform at both Riot Fests in Denver and Chicago. Hypercaffium Spazzinate is set for release on July 29.
As previously reported, Descendents have shared a new song “Victim of Me,” which you can listen to below. Pre-orders for Hypercaffium Spazzinate are available at https://lnk.to/descendents. Full details on Descendents tour dates below.
Descendents’ first Epitaph release since Everything Sucks in 1996, Hypercaffium Spazzinate began taking shape after the band ended an extended hiatus to play live in 2010. Though still tight, they lived apart: singer Milo Aukerman -- whose cartoon rendering famously serves as the band’s logo -- was now living in Delaware, bassist Karl Alvarez and founder and drummer Bill Stevenson were in Colorado, and guitarist Stephen Egerton had settled in Oklahoma. So 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. Adopting such a protracted process meant not having to rush things, allowing for some of their sharpest songwriting yet.
Every Descendents album is an event. Formed in 1978, the band’s first releases have proven historic, and all the ones since have only further refined the Descendents concept. Punk, pop, buzzing, summery, heartfelt, defiant, adolescent, and wise all at once -- the Descendents. Twelve years have passed since there’s been new Descendents music. Finally, here comes their long-awaited album, Hypercaffium Spazzinate.
