Press ReleaseBlack Flag original members Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski, and Bill Stevenson, along with guitarist Stephen Egerton (who played along Bill Stevenson in Descendents and ALL), spurred by crowd reaction to a surprise set at Goldenvoice's 30th anniversary show in 2011, have formed FLAG as a vehicle to continue performing the hardcore progentiors' repertoire. Appearances at Belgium's Groezrock Festival and Germany's Monster Bash this April, with full US tourdates to follow throughout the year.

The members of the quartet have maintained a steadfast relationship to the music they helped pioneer. Keith Morris, who served as Black Flag's original vocalist, followed his tenure in the group by forming the hugely influential Circle Jerks and more recently OFF! Chuck Dukowski, Black Flag's bassist from 1977-1983, continued on as co-owner of the band's label SST and as bassist in a variety of project including Würm, SWA, Chuck Dukowski Sextet, and Black Face. Bill Stevenson's 1981-1985 stint in Black Flag was concurrent with his tenure in Descendents (who remain active and are playing this year's Coachella) with virtuosic guitarist Stephen Egerton. The new outfit will play sets that pull from all eras of Black Flag's history.

FLAG CONFIRMED TOUR DATES:
4/26 - Monster Bash Festival - Munich, Germany
4/27 - Monster Bash Festival - Berlin, German
4/28 - Groezrock Festival - Meerhout, Belgium
5/24-5/27 - Punk Rock Bowling - Las Vegas, NV
