Pennywise have announced a New Zealand show as part of their 20 th Anniversary Tour, where the So Cal punk rock legends will be performing their album STRAIGHT AHEAD in its entirety, plus fan favourites.

Formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles, a neighbourhood with a rich punk rock history, Pennywise began in 1988. The band would go on to amass an international following through relentless touring and a melodic high energy sound merging melodic surf punk, blistering hardcore and the classic punk of their youth.

The group has solidified their place in punk history with songs like the raging ‘Fuck Authority’, ‘Alien’, and the band’s legendary ode to brotherhood and departed friends ‘Bro Hymn’.

The album STRAIGHT AHEAD, which the band will play in full to celebrate 20 years in the game, was released in mid 1999. Regarded by some as the band’s strongest work, Sputnik Music describes the record as “full of fast, heavy, rockin’ punk rock… one of the symbolic punk albums of the ’90s and a definite classic from one of California’s finest exports”.

Auckland punk rock four-piece Flirting With Disaster will support Pennywise. Featuring former members of The Rabble, Chazz Valentine, False Start and Broken Avenue, Flirting With Disaster’s new record REDUNDANT was released on December 4. Influenced by bands such as Green Day, Rancid and blink-182, Flirting With Disaster are a class act.
