D.O.A. Announce “Hardcore 81” 40th Anniversary Tour

It’s time for some wild and riotous shows, D.O.A., the Men of Action are ready to head out on tour. After two years of almost no shows, the band has 15 shows booked in April and May. In April they intend to take the US West Coast by storm with 12 shows where they will play Hardcore 81 in it’s entirety.

That raging slab of vinyl was the start of Hardcore punk and Sudden Death has re-released it with three bonus tracks and a 12 page booklet: D.O.A.’s “History of Hardcore” written by Joey Shithead.
