Californian hardcore punk band Good Riddance have announced an Australian tour this morning. The band are coming back down under after their 2015 tour.
Forming in Santa Cruz, California during the early 90’s. The band grew out of California’s vibrant surfing and skateboarding culture and was influenced by such bands as Black Flag, The Adolescents, TSOL and Bad Religion as well as East Coast bands like Sick Of It All and the Cro Mags.
With the release of their debut album “For God And Country” in 1995 on Fat Wreck, over the next decade Good Riddance went on to release seven full length albums and an EP for Fat while crisscrossing the globe dozens of times on tour.
In May 2007 Good Riddance played their final show, fittingly in their hometown of Santa Cruz. The members then went their separate ways to raise families and pursue careers. In 2012 the members of Good Riddance decided to get together and play a few shows again. The reason was simple: they missed the songs.
Good Riddance will be returning to Australia for a national tour this April, with their first show being in Brisbane on April 20 with the tour finishing in Melbourne on April 27. Catch them at The Cambridge Hotel in Newcastle on Sunday April 22nd.
If it's on in Newcastle, it's on Newcastle Live
