Strung Out announces “Twisted In A Suburban Wasteland” tour dates

Music News | By on May 30th, 2012

Strung Out announced tour dates sporadically throughout the US & Canada (No NYC dates folks) and they will be playing their albums Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues and Twisted By Design in their entirety during each set. If you want to see them play these albums in the Northeast, you’ll have to travel to Philly or Pittsburgh. But don’t worry, a second leg will be announced soon.

Legendary punk rock pioneers STRUNG OUT are preparing to get Twisted In A Suburban Wasteland throughout the US and Canada this summer. They’ll be performing both of their most notable albums – 1996’s Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues and 1998’s Twisted By Design – in their entirety during each set. “It feels right to do one last retrospective before we head into the making of another album. I think people will really enjoy these older songs played back to back,” says lead vocalist Jason Cruz. The tour kicks off at Portland’s Hawthorne Theatre on July 17th, heads north to Canada for ten shows, then back across the US border to finish up the first string of dates. Such Gold, Handguns, and The Darlings will be supporting Strung Out on this trek (dates below). A second leg of dates for September/October will be announced shortly.

Easily one of the most influential punk bands still in existence today, Strung Out has managed to perfect the quintessential blend of punk, metal and hardcore in their twenty years of existence. Their blistering technical solos, pounding drums and raw punk fury opened the doors for punks to push the limits of not only their talents but also the entire genre, helping to define some of the biggest names in music today.
