Lagwagon Returning To New Zealand In March 2020

Lagwagon Returning To New Zealand In March 2020

C.C. / Thursday 5th September, 2019 9:00AM

Southern California's Lagwagon are celebrating three decades of killer skate punk anthems with a brand new album and a tour of Australasia, including headline events in Auckland and Wellington in March 2020. While Lagwagon were last here as part of the monstrous lineup for Westfest 2015, you may have spotted members playing as part of punk supergroup Me First and The Gimme Gimmes on their two date 2017 tour. For Lagwagon's first Aotearoa headline shows since all the way back in 2012, frontman Joey Cape and the gang promise to get crowds pumped with songs from their ninth studio album RAILER, a "personal and political treatise on the socio-economic state of America today" dropping in early October. Grip the tour details right here...

UPDATE 16/03/20: Lagwagon have cancelled their March Aotearoa shows and shared the following statement via social media...

"To all our New Zealand friends and fans: we are incredibly disappointed that we will not be able to perform for you as planned in Auckland (21 March) and Wellington (22 March), due to the government's new quarantine restrictions for visitors. That said, we know that these new regulations are a good move, made with the health and safety of all of you in mind. We hope to return soon, when this global pandemic eventually subsides. Please take care of yourselves and your families and friends, ok? Stay safe and stay healthy!"

Press release:

Long running southern California punk band Lagwagon dropped a ferocious new single today called Surviving California – from their upcoming album, RAILER alongside announcing an Australian & NZ March 2020 headlining tour with shows happening in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Adelaide plus Auckland & Wellington.

The new single “Surviving California, was inspired by the city where front-man Joey Cape now lives and serves as both a personal and political treatise on the socio-economic state of America today. The title of the influential punk five-piece’s ninth album, RAILER is due out October 4, 2019 on Fat Wreck Chords - Pre-order HERE. It captures the spirit of the band’s early days – youthful but jaded, frantic but exhausted, visceral yet cerebral. As Cape explains, ‘railer’ is “a funny word from childhood that means ‘silly bad’, like lame” and it captures the sense of throwback that flows throughout its 12 songs.”

Bred from a long lineage of punk bands out of Southern California, Lagwagon became one of the most influential, pioneering the now-famous ‘Fat Wreck sound’ with their speedy drums, guitar virtuosity and undeniable melodies.
