This fall, Pennywise is back at it again, and it’s about time. In June of this year, they announced their About Time U.S. Tour with a lineup (Unwritten Law, Strung Out, and Runaway Kids) that will bring us back to the later days of punk rock yore. The band, along with Unwritten Law has played pivotal roles in ‘90s and 2000s punk rock, especially in California, where both bands got their well received start. Both bands were largely responsible for bringing punk rock subculture into the limelight.
As west coast punk icons, Pennywise is one of the most successful independent bands of all time, selling millions of albums worldwide. It has been more than 25 years since the melodic hardcore band was originally formed, and they show no signs of stopping.
Unwritten Law is responsible for many alternative rock anthems we hold near and dear to our hearts. They are definitely a band to see live, and they put on a hell of a show. With each song, the crowd shamelessly belted the lyrics, proof that their following has been relentlessly loyal throughout the years. Check out their feature in Issue No. 42.
Strung Out is another iconic punk rock band in the About Time Tour lineup. The So-Cal formed group began in 1989, making waves in the music scene since their start.
Keep an eye out for this epic lineup coming to a city near you. \m/
