Other Founding Black Flag Members to Tour as: Flag

In a surreal move that can be deemed both a blessing and a curse; founding Black Flag vocalist Keith Morris and bassist Charles Dukowski has announced that they too will be reuniting with Black Flag material and forming a new band simply titled "Flag."  They will be joined by Bill Stevenson and guitarist Stephen Egerton (who played along Bill Stevenson in the Descendents and ALL.)  Apparently this union was sparked by positive crowd reaction to a surprise Black Flag set by the foursome at Goldenvoice's 30th anniversary show in 2011.

You can catch this version of Black Flag in Europe at The Monster Bash and Groezrock Festivals, and at Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas over Memorial Day Weekend (May 24 - 27) where they'll join other Punk bands like The Damned (who are also playing Chaos), DRI, Lagwagon, Subhumans, The Bouncing Souls, Swingin Utters, Lower Class Brats and more. Tickets for Punk Rock Bowling go on sale Tuesday (1/29) at 1PM PST.  I guess two bands are better than one, and with Black Flag's revolving cast of members you'd be hard pressed to find a "definitive" lineup anyhow.  Maybe next week Henry Rollins and Robo will announce their tour as The Black Flag ExperienceA new album or extensive US tour has yet to be announced.  For now we have the upcoming tour dates:

4/26 - Monster Bash Festival - Munich, Germany
4/27 - Monster Bash Festival - Berlin, German
4/28 - Groezrock Festival - Meerhout, Belgium
5/24-5/27 - Punk Rock Bowling - Las Vegas, NV
