Pennywise

Pennywise have announced a bunch of Fall tour dates with Strung Out, Unwritten Law and Runaway Kids. The band will be playing their album About Time in its entirety. The tour will stop at Irving Plaza on October 20th in NYC and on October 21st at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ. Tickets go on-sale this Friday at pennywisdom.com/tour.

Pennywise have made a name for themselves over the past 28 years as a politically minded, melodic hardcore band that has sold millions of albums and become one of the most successful independent acts of all time. Formed in 1988, the band played backyard parties in their hometown of Hermosa Beach, California, without having any aspirations other than playing as many songs as they could before the police showed up. Hermosa Beach and the surrounding neighborhoods are a prominent place in popular culture, with groups like Black Flag, The Circle Jerks and Descendents merging a fast rebellious sound with the surrounding aggressive surf and skate culture. Inspired by their predecessors, Pennywise were at the forefront of a second wave of American punk rock that would catapult the movement from a tight-knit subculture into a worldwide movement.

Their 1995 classic album About Time brought Pennywise to mainstream acknowledgement with tracks “Same Old Story,” “Perfect People,” and “Every Single Day” hitting international airwaves. For their fall 2016 tour, Pennywise will celebrate About Time by performing the album in it’s entirety along with other classic Pennywise favorites.
