Punk never died, it just emerged in the garish sweet 'n' sour form of Brooklyn-based band Fang Island, and from April 2013, Europe will have chance to see their power-punk greatness live.

Originally hailing from Rhode Island, the band released their rightly critically acclaimed debut album Fang Island back in 2010. They now go on tour to support their follow up Major, which was released in July last year. Featuring much of the same infectious chord progressions and with perfectly matched support from No Spill Blood, the live shows promise to be just – if not more – as driven as they sound on record.

If you don't believe us, take a look at them performing 'Asunder' in a video recorded studio session they’ve just released to whet our appetite for the dates below:
