Punk legends the CIRCLE JERKS will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their classic album "Group Sex" by reuniting for a number of special shows in 2020.
The group's first concert since 2011 will take place the week of May 21-25, 2020 at Las Vegas's Punk Rock Bowling music festival and will be followed by a three-show run in Austria and Germany between May 29 and May 31.
According to Brooklyn Vegan, the CIRCLE JERKS lineup for the upcoming dates will include singer Keith Morris, guitarist Greg Hetson and bassist Zander Schloss. The group is also planning a reissue of "Group Sex".
From the beginning, the CIRCLE JERKS were rooted in controversy. Formed by ex-members of BLACK FLAG and REDD KROSS in late 1979, the band came to encapsulate the image, sound and energy of California hardcore punk.
CIRCLE JERKS have released six studio albums, one compilation, a live album and a live DVD. The band has broken up and reformed several times, sometimes with different bassists and/or drummers.
In 2016, Morris released a memoir, "My Damage: The Story of a Punk Rock Survivor", in which he fired shots at former bandmates, including Hetson.
Germany! Austria! Heading your way in May with this crazy cast of characters!
