Sick Of It All Announce Auckland Headline Show

NYC hardcore punk legends Sick Of It All are making their explosive return to Aotearoa, playing at Auckland's Galatos on 5th February with local heavy hitters Drop off Point and Amanaki. Built to last from their 1986 formation in Queens, New York City onwards, Sick Of It All's unapologetically aggressive, massively impactful oeuvre includes 1989's debut Blood, Sweat and No Tears, 1994's breakout Scratch the Surface and their run of Fat Wreck Chords albums in the late '90s / early '00 — returning Fat Mike's imprint with 2018's Wake the Sleeping Dragon! You'd be a sucker to miss Sick Of It All's one-night only headline rager the evening before Waitangi Day, brought to you by The Syndicate Touring Australia and Sticky Fingaz Tour Management...
