Black Flag set to reform
Dig out those albums and rekindle your inner punk, because earlier today, Rocksound announced that the notorious punk rock band Black Flag are making a return. Having gone through a series of line-up changes throughout their 10 year run, it is said the iconic band will now be fronted by Ron Reyes.
Breaking up in 1986, dedicated fans of their definitive, highly influential hardcore sound and pioneering DIY approach to music have had an uncertain, long wait for this moment. The band are set to play their only U.K. performance of 2013 at Hevy Festival in Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in August. Tickets are available now.
